Agreed.  That was the entire point of the suggested project for that
student, encapsulate all the uglyness of CVS into either APT or DPKG or a
separate program.

Right now I can type something that vaguely resembles line noise into my
terminal to do what I'm proposing.  The goal of the student's project would
be to replace that uglyness with a nice smooth interface thats well
integrated with the rest of the Debian system, all well working
cooperatively with other developers.
