BTW, most of them were reported by myself IIRC ;)
I'd suggest you just ignore 1.5.1, as the new features it adds are
basically taken care of in apt, and Klee's approach to them tend to
ignore lots of features 1.4.9.x bring.
WRT the versions of APT I tested, I had the deep feeling its FTP
method is nowhere near what dpkg-ftp can do.
However it may be worth to work on apt-ftp, to bring it beyond the level
of functionality dpkg-ftp currently has, instead of adding more
functionality to a package which will surely be dropped some day.
