No, it's still the package of the day... and an hour from now, a 
*different* package will be the package of the day:)

Don't complain, or I'll make it update every ten minutes!

If anyone's curious, the reason I did this is that there's so much 
software for debian - about 17,000 packages in i386/main - that there 
are probably some you would find interesting or useful, except that 
they get lost in the haystack and you never encounter them.  I read a 
post once in which someone bemoaned the passing of dselect, because it 
highlighted newly-minted packages.  With apt*, he rarely knew of that 
new software, unless he just stumbled across it.  I thought that was a 
pretty good point.
