I say take out all the methods from dpkg and make them a separate package.
Then make dpkg depend on a pseudo "dpkg-method" package (provided by apt,
dpkg-multicd, etc).  Then, set either apt or multi_cd as the default.
Yours is a good short term solution since mine probably can't be completed
for this release.
