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.
