You forgot to provide the source for your rewrite; the "library" is rather
small to have a serious look at it even through a multithreaded cache would
be interesting, but it not even builds as I miss a "blossom.h" which apt-file
couldn't tell me where to find …

Based on the README the keyword in this sentence is "yet", so:
Yeah, yet an other project striking to rewrite APT in the future!
If only half the amount of time used to write all these rewrites would be
used to help the chronic under-staffed APT team … :(
