I was discussing this issue with some other members on #ubuntu+1 irc just
yesterday. Should aptitude be included in Maverick by default?

I can't see any valid reason of why it should be. We already have apt-get,
dpkg and gdebi. And between the 3 of those, all bases are already covered.
So I believe one has to raise the question.
I'm not aware of how much space aptitude actually consumes, but the space
could be better used for something more useful and/or important.
