I wasn't aware of that latter.  I think that is a bug in abpt.

Maybe once upon a time this was a reasonable workaround for ancient
maintainer scripts, and the need to be able to run apt without a tty.
But those days are long gone.

Would someone care to file a bug against apt, requesting that the
default be changed early in the buster cycle ?
