I named apt - the Advanced Package Tool / Administration/Packaging Tool -
many months ago. My original proposal for a graphic - which should be
in the archives - somewhere - http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/1998
/debian-devel-199803/msg0031.html - suggested a big red box with yellow
ribbons or a brown paper package tied up with string. Both of these
would probably be recognised worldwide as a package of some kind.
Perhaps a Debian swirl on the wrapping paper (though apt was originally
expressed as distribution neutral).
It has also been a fascinating trip through a fun flame war :) I went
back via google to try and find _exactly_ when apt was adopted as the
name and refreshed my memory on a helluva fight!
