So as far as GUI package managers go in Debian, there's synaptic (APT
front-end), apper, and gnome-packagekit, the latter two being front-ends
to packagekit, a daemon, which is a front-end itself (back-ended by
APTcc in Debian, though actually agnostic distribution-wise and
therefore back-end-wise, too, I guess)?
