Forcing new application on CD 1 is not a `little thing'. And if you
do that for applications like aptitude and gnome-apt which very few
people use and are of beta-quality (gnome-apt has a big warning that
it may destroy your system even) I'm temtped to call it bad judgement

True, however this late in the release process it's not that difficult
to miss such a change and discover that too late.
