apt can do that as well:
(for those interested: for other values, it may be worth to have a look
at preseed-apt from
http://git.debian.net/?p=debian-custom/preseed-apt.git which is a
preseeding interface for apt.conf, i did this do configure stuff through
a preseeding file e.g. in live systems).

i do totally agree that one should use aptitude on etch, because at the
time etch was released, aptitude was better than etch. for lenny, i beg
to differ - i think that apt-get is much better in lenny and newer than
that is also reflected in live-helper: for building etch images, we
default to use aptitude, for everything later, we default to use apt.
