it's definitely worth trying.
apt isn't a substitute for dselect, it is complimentary to it.
i still use dselect for full system upgrades (i like the control it
gives me over what gets upgraded and what doesn't...e.g. Hold and
Unhold). i use Apt as the install method.
i also use apt to install/upgrade individual packages. it's a lot easier
to type "apt-get install foo" than it is to find the package, download
it (or cd to the right dir of my mirror :-), and then run "dpkg -iBE"
