Actually the more direct cause to the build error it's commit
2591a1d9069eb2e75087737c25b41449b68bd248 in cwidget.  I worked on it
in May/June, along with other changes in cwidget, but then it took a
while in the NEW queue to get uploaded to experimental, so the window
of opportunity for me to work on it went away...

Maybe with that patch to cwdiget is enough, but maybe not; there are
more changes needed for Boost for example, not sure what's the default
version of boost now, but if not now the adaptation will be needed

More in general, what it needs to happen is to move cwidget 0.5.18-1
to unstable (as -2 or whatever), then rebuild aptitude against it
(would be a transition, but aptitude is the only package depending on
cwidget), and releases cwidget 0.5.19 and aptitude 0.8.12 as well --
it contains fixes for the upcoming apt 1.9 and other things.

Maybe I can start by moving cwidget to unstable and either binNMUing
or releasing the new aptitude version?
