Option 1.  19 1/2 wouldn't even fit into a ternary logic system, so I
suppose it would have to be a quantum computer.   When short and
comprehensible go together it's a rare and welcome event.  Add
comprehensive and I know that I'm in heaven.

Garbage collector because of circularly linked dependencies.  But I
reckon apt must have that already.

So yes, were I to wish to use apt on a set of files of my own, how do I do it?
