As far as I know, the integer values are not returned anywhere in
apt_pkg, except for apt_pkg.SourceRecords.build_depends, but these export
BuildDepType and the CompType.
I would prefer to make SourceRecords.build_depends return dictionaries just
like Version.depends_list and Version.depends_list_str, and not export those
numeric values at all.
Because we won't be exporting those values anymore after this change, we will
be able to close this bug. And we will have a more unified API and you can
also access the translations (e.g. Dependency.dep_type is the translated
dependency type already; BuildDependency.dep_type would be the same).
I hope this is sufficient for you.
