I was unaware that pipelining was considered "broken by design", so I
was trying to say that if there was an easy way for apt to choose
between pipelining and no pipelining (if it wasn't specifically set by
the admin) that would handle most of the cases, that was better than
disabling by default a feature that was beneficial to many.

If pipelining is considered broken, and concurrency is preferred, I'm
perfectly happy with that.
