My apologies for trying to get this started in parallel. It clearly got
things off on the wrong foot. You'll find things quite a bit more developed
now, I think; as I said on Monday, I was aiming for feature equivalence by
Friday, and expect to hit it with completion of bug 681 tomorrow:


In any case, it appears that this is an idea which is only going to stir up
resentment from the APT team -- understandably, I suppose -- and thus I
cheerfully withdraw my suggestion that Debian and the APT Team look at it.

I look forward to a non-glacial apt-show-versions in Debian, however it
happens and whomever writes it. Feel free to package rapt-show-versions
should that C++ apt-show-versions never get itself written. Be well!
