Bug#683323: unblock: python-apt/0.8.7



Hello.

Julian Andres Klode <jak@debian.org> (30/07/2012):
> Since the version of testing, this contains mostly bug fixes and

Then I'm not sure we need or want this new module in wheezy…

Especially when it took that long to get it to basically work. :(

I'll leave the pythonish review to some other python-fluent release
team members anyway; just a bit astonished to see new code at this
point.
