[Bug report: apt: Apt should be prepared for internationalisation]

Just for your knowledge, I have sent the following bug to Apt. IMHO this
might even be RC but maybe I'm too radical. In any case if anyone can help
the main developer to gettextize apt sources it would be great.

Subject: apt: Apt should be prepared for internationalisation
To: submit@bugs.debian.org

Package: apt
Version: 0.5.4
Severity: normal

First off, I set this to "normal" and not "wishlist" because all
Debian package tools (dpkg, dselect) as of now are internationalised and
apt should be too ASAP

Long report:

Apt currently does not provided any kind of internationalisation support
for any of the tools (apt-cache, apt-cdrom, apt-get and apt-config), all
these programs should be internationalised with gettext. 

If they are not, users will have a strange mixture of languages when using
Debian-specific tools:

1.- dbootstrap (basic installation) is internationalised
2.- taksel is too
3.- dselect is too
4.- apt is *not*
5.- dpkg is internationalised.

	The only piece missing currently is apt.
