As far as I can see none of this is actually present now. The
archive scripts have not been modified, there is not debug/* archive
section, there are no downloadable share, yada et al helper packages
have not yet been modified.
So I would actually have been very surprised were
aptitude/synaptic ahead of the curve and had current support.
This whole thread seems to be about getting policy to write up
things, with most of the proposal currently not implemented in
Debian. Now, I think you meant to warn me that some of the currently
proposed features do not have code in other distributions either, and
that's fair warning.
There are two problems with a major hangover. You feel like you are
going to die and you're afraid that you won't.
