As one who works on Ubuntu Core itself, apt isn't hugely interesting to me
(though I think that silo testing procedures on the phone and therefore future
Ubuntu Personal will have to be adjusted) but dpkg is. I'm curious what the
workflow will be like on a dpkg-less system...  all I'm personally using dpkg
for is as a means to extract the files to the system so there is no real need
for a full dpkg, but wondering if this piece has been worked out.
