alternative front-end for dpkg -- console interface

This package provides a console interface to Cupt library, which is a re-implementation of libapt-pkg C++ library using Perl. The aim is to produce more strict, more robust, less buggy front-end than APT.

Cupt uses the same APT infrastructure, e.g. index files, deb cache archive files, configuration files. It understands some of widely used APT options.

Some features:

 - strict full-case resolver;
 - resolver reasons tracking;
 - command-line and APT-like option name checker;
 - case-sensitive search;
 - pinning by source package name;
 - pinning by package groups using shell-like patterns;
 - configurable 'depends' and 'rdepends' subcommands;
 - 'satisfy' subcommand;
 - support of LZMA-compressed indexes;
 - source versions synchronization;
 - 'shell' subcommand (to get command history, search etc. working, install
   the package 'libterm-readline-gnu-perl');
 - integration with debdelta (to get it, install the package 'debdelta');
 - system snapshots (needs packages 'dpkg-dev' and 'dpkg-repack').

Its interface is mostly like apt-get/aptitude console interface.
