Too right - I never used gnome-app-install, so it didn't occur to me.
When I said "show Synaptic" I meant "Show the package manager
automatically resolving dependancies" (that's the impressive part)

One thing I was impressed with was the ability to install programs and
apply updates without restarting... pity it's probably not something
that can be demonstrated, unless you had a small upgradable package that
you held back?
