I find reprepro vastly over engineered for what I'm trying to do (Move
debs out of a flat directory into a pool somewhere else). Its maintains
an internal database of all packages, and it can Get Confused (TM) and
require removing/cleaning/recreating.

I've had `reprepro -Vb /srv/gnewsense/ deleteunreferenced` running for
4 days on one mirror, and its still not done cleaning up the database.
Time to nuke+pave i think.

While you could make apt-move a wrapper around reprepro, I don't think
it would be replacing two identical tools. with one+ a wrapper.
IMO, of course.
