Does apt-get support scheduled actions at all?

Because I don't think that it does, and in that case I don't understand
why it is relevant to mention it here, and what's the disadvantage with
aptitude w.r.t. apt.

*-upgrades have scheduled actions into account unconditionally, if
possible at all, rather than adding yet more config options.  But I am
leaning more towards +wontfix.
