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).
