But it doesn't work _well_.  I've never found synaptic useful, and I have 
actually used it on and off ever since it was first introduced (I just 
deleted it off my system again, this morning).

When it comes right down to it, since the demise of kpackage, I've never 
found anything that works better than aptitude at the command line.
