Not trying to spin any flamewars or try to be obnoxious here, however I
just have to ask this: "why the need for 2 modes in first place?". I'm
taking care of quite a few (read - "much more than 10" ;) ) linux boxes
(embedded and otherwise) and none of them has separate modes for package
installation - you either install package or you don't. There's nothing
in between. What was the motivation to split the two? Is that because
Application Manager is not exactly apt-get frontend and does something
"extra" that  couldn't have been implemented via extension of
apt-get/dpkg ? I'm just curious.
