Thanks for your reply. You mean just add a pop-up dialog box which contain
some search criteria text entry or completely re-written the whole GUI of
Aptitude, like using Glade?

I see. Making target finished in time and in good quality is always priority
NO.1, IMO and making it distributable in September really exits me(I like
day-dreaming :-D). 
And by merging actually, I mean something like making Aptitude more
newbie-friendly(forgive my poor English). I myself suffer a lot from
installing and upgrading softwares at first because I didn't dare to try. A
powerful tool with complicated and hard-to-focus interface often intimidates
newbie like I was.

Your advise is really appreciated.
