I recompiled apt 0.3.0 and posted it with gnome-apt because it had
features not present in the already-posted apt 0.3.0

Looking back, this was a bad idea to have another apt with the same
rev floating around.... but too late now.
I also should have put an ftp warning in the description, but... doh!

I hope that a 0.3.1 will be released soon, then I can have gnome-apt
depend on apt >= 0.3.1 and pull 0.3.0 from the directory housing
