I've been using kpackage as long as it's existed, and it's never been that.
If the packages it's using are debs, it's _strictly_ a front end for apt-get.
If the packages are rpms, it's a front end for rpm (?? not sure about that -
_not_ alien, in any case). It also recognizes all sorts of other package
formats. It doesn't "degrade" apt-get in any way. I like the way it lets me
scan the dependency chain (which is the only reason I usually use it,
otherwise I just use apt-get).
