Patrick, I've seen some baloney in my day, but that prose takes the cake.
I think you're full of crap, but you could prove me wrong sort of 
something like this:

$ apt -s install sysvinit-core wicd
NOTE: This is only a simulation!
      apt needs root privileges for real execution.
      Keep also in mind that locking is deactivated,
      so don't depend on the relevance to the real current situation!
