What do you mean by "interactive frontend"? For debconf you mean?
I'm afraid that requires a rewrite of Jockey, since it's currently
frontend <-> dbus <-> backend <-> python-apt, so the backend doesn't
have X access. I'm afraid this isn't SRUable.

Those make a lot of sense. I'll see to fixing those ASAP and SRU them.
