i disagree here, i found aptitude much more usable than console-apt, but aptitude also lacks some of console-apt's powerful features, namely keybindings, and clarity. but then again, aptitude has features that i need. 

if we could combine console-apt and aptitude, or either one of those could merge the other ones features, we would have a winner!

although, i have to agree, it was wrong to remove console-apt from stable, what was the reason again? (some coredump?)
get a life, get the second one free...
