Dear Jidanni,

Proof that this is wrong:

That feature wasn't present in apt 1.4.8 which was present when the
original bug was reported. Hence reverting your changes to this bug

Feel free to report a separate bug report for compatibility with the
2.1.16 apt changes.

And wrt. to
Please note that apt-get hasn't changed either and behaves differently
that apt. And nobody stated that aptitude will follow apt and not
apt-get. (Nobody has stated the opposite either, though, but it's
obviously the default.)
