Not really an objection, but do we want to confuse users with an extra
way to manage repositories. Also APT AFAIK still doesn't handle multi-lib.
Is there any significant reason to use apt instead of yum? Don't get me
wrong choice usually is good, but this is a very fundamental piece of
the distro, and becoming so more and more. We also have only one kernel,
C-library and X-server and with good reasons.
