Yeah, just from browsing point of view using tree to present the sections 
would make it much nicer looking, no argument there. My point was that 
using those on RHL/FC for "task" functionality is a total disaster

Right .. bzip2 only exists as 64bit version on RHEL3 which is basically 
the only x86_64 distro I have experience with so that wasn't an issue. In 
fact apt *builds* just fine on RHEL3, it's the actual functionality which 
is problematic because apt doesn't know how to deal with packages with 
same version but different architecture installed simultaneously.
