aptitude is priority: important, and while it's not used in the installer or
mentioned in the installation manual (AFAIK), it has been the recommended
upgrade path for two releases now, with its Recommends: handling being a
major reason for this.  I'd be surprised if there weren't at least *some*
users switching to it as a result.
