Umm. Re-inventing the dependency code in dpkg/dselect?

I thought this was about user interfaces. Re-inventing the dependency code  
seems to me a really extreme case of stupidity - and that's putting it  
mildly.

No one seems to have pointed out any design flaws in that part of the  
code. Prettying it up, doing some fixes, ok - reinventing it, what on  
earth for?
