No, srry, a flamewar was not my intention. The background is, that i.e. 
apt-get dist-upgrade is choosig a different package seletion than i.e. 
aptitude. Additionally aptitude does not stop when an error at installation 
happens. So all the tools seem to have different behaviours. If that is so, 
there must be advantages or disadvantages. So, that is, what I would like to 
find out.

Best regards

Hans
