Package: aptitude
Version: 0.8-1
Followup-For: Bug #822329

Dear Maintainer,

I wish to second the bug report.  I have several machines of various ages and
speeds, and on some this is a true nuisance.  I tried to install a modern Debian
(i.e., sid) on a raspberry, everything worked fine except for the several second
wait in aptitude.  I admit I did not read through the bug report this is supposed
to fix, but there should be a way to disable this new behaviour without breaking
basic functionality such as satifaction of "Recommends" in easy cases.
