Is this silly to think that, as most of the (good) work was made in
aptitude-gtk, an aptitude-qt development would be a better idea?
aptitude-foo was tried in last summer's GSoC, resulting in aptitude-gtk.
It's only experimental, but it not only depends on aptitude, it's also
part of the aptitude source package. I'm not convinced that an
aptitude-qt would do much better.
