Call for tests: C rewrite of update-alternatives


I just completed the C rewrite of update-alternatives. It passes the test
suite (which covers many use cases) but I would still like to have some
beta-testers before I push that to master.

So please test what's in my pu/u-a-c-rewritre branch and report back:

Code reviews are welcome too but note that the available functions
clearly map what was in the perl version and the available API is not
super-clean. In the longer term (post-squeeze) I intend to fix that so
that we can reuse that API within dpkg and fix bugs like #25759.
