Re: Bug#592877: ITP: apt2 -- Advanced Package Tool 2

I find it fairly rude to stomp on apt's namespace like that, and while
apt's currently at a sub-1 number, it might eventually reach 2.0, and
then you'll have more confusion, just like you have for jabberd 1.4 and
jabberd2 being completely different code bases that have nothing in
common apart from the name.  The same goes for apt-ng or similar names
that imply that «apt2» is the next version of apt.

(This said with the assumption that «apt2» isn't scheduled to replace
apt, with the apt maintainers's blessing.  If they're happy to drop the
current apt in favour of «apt2», my complaint goes away.)
