All in all not bad.  I wont nitpick spelling mistakes, they are trivial.  One
question came to mind though.  You stated that when dealing w/ multiple sources
that more than one version of a package may exist.  Apt will allow two options:
user most current, or use the preferred source.  This sounds good.  However how
will the handling of packages with dependencies go?  Internally does apt put
the package on hold like one would have to do by hand in dselect?
