I can only echo this. Apt is available now and widely used, the time
spend helping it with bugfixes, features, (code)cleanup or writing
{integration,unit}tests helps a lot of people now whereas rewriting it
from scratch may help only in some (distant?) future. I prefer to see
a port of apt-show-versions to libapt and c++ instead of a rewrite of
apt/libapt/apt-show-versions. Happy to help with that and provide the
skeleton and guidance on irc and all that even.
