Those are some really nice plans for a tool. You also summed up a great
deal of the recent dialog on the list. Well done! From the wiki I
noticed that most of the functionality for cdd-tool is similar in nature
to the functionality in apt. Would it be reasonable to make this tool
part of that apt suite and use the existing apt code to accomplish the
task? In the end I imagine a tool titled apt-cdd that would use the same
arguments as you have described in wiki. What do you think?
