  Description     : shellscript wrapper for apt-get or aptitude

apt-fast is a shellscript wrapper for apt-get that can drastically improve apt

It uses aria2 oder axel as download managers and apt-get --print-uris to get
download URLs.
Bash and Zsh autocompletion included (derived from distributed apt-get).
