If you do a non-ncurses activity (aptitude update, aptitude install foo)
you have to pay that price _after_ the operation completes, but before
the program exits. This makes sense if you were returning to the UI
afterwards but with these use-cases youdon't. I expect this would be an
easy win for anyone who wanted to poke at the aptitude source :)
