muon bug reports

I honestly don't know, Carlo did do some changes, also in the
underlying libqapt. I haven't used muon in at least half a decade, but
from what I recall it definitely was complete. Of course at the same
time it's a massively feature rich app so there's bound to be problems
and that's what those bugs are by the looks of it. Specifically half
look like weird problems elsewhere that simply happen to manifest in
muon, a quarter are legit issues in weird scenarios and the other
quarter are wishlist items. The more concerning bit is libqapt WRT
maintenance. libapt-pkg does change ABI every once in a while and if
informed porting to the new API doesn't happen then that's bound to
bit rot through uninformed hodgepodge porting eventually.

That being said, if nobody wants to maintain muon I'm fine with sunsetting it.
Equally I'm fine with sunsetting libqapt but as I recall some of the
l10n support tech depends on it (via libkubuntu).
