Not to dissuade anyone from yet another interesting project (I have my own 
share of reinvent-the-wheel projects), but I think yet another new apt 
cache project needs some justification.  What are the downsides of approx 
and apt-proxy that merit the effort of rewriting apt-cacher? (I assume the 
current apt-proxy codebase is not up to your standards if a rewrite has 
been found necessary.)

Some of you may have heard of this crazy company called SCO (aka
"Smoking Crack Organization") who seem to have a hard time believing
that open source works better than their five engineers do.
