As end users, we don't know how the synaptic situation is going to play
out.  It may be removed permanently, or the bug that caused its removal
may be fixed/closed in any of several possible ways.

So for us, it's wait and see.

Recommending a vastly inferior GNOME substitute isn't what I consider a
proper, permanent solution.  But it's a wiki, and you have just as much
right to edit it as I do, if you think the advice will be useful.
