yay! :-)

btw, this reminds me of 
http://piuparts.debian.org/squeeze2wheezy/excessive_output_error.html - do you 
have an idea how to handle the legitimate laaarge output of daptup in case of 

Package: daptup
Description: reporter of changes in list of available packages from 
 Daptup runs "apt-get update' inside and then outputs four
  - packages came to archive with this update;
  - new upgradeable packages;
  - changes in "watched" packages (not installed, such packages have to be
   specified in configuration file);
  - outdated packages that have a new install candidate (optionally).
 Daptup also has apt hook to run automatically within 'apt-get update' or
 'cupt update'.
