Well, analogies to 'apt-get source' and 'apt-get build-dep' were
still missing the last time I tried, but these days I have little
trouble remembering to type apt-get instead of aptitude when I need
those. Also, its default search doesn't seem to match quite so
extensively (loosely?) as 'apt-cache search' from what I've seen,
but that's likely just a case of me having been too lazy to RTFM and
figure out that I need to add an option flag when running it.
