Well, really the comparison was aptitude to deselect, not aptitude to apt-get.

aptitude really does the work of both -- it can provide a TUI interface
(which Mark was complaining about), and it can also act as a command-line
installer/remover/searcher, as you show below:

The dselect TUI was offensive to me. :^P  aptitude seemed a bit better,
but I still only ever use aptitude as an apt-get clone... or just stick
with apt-get, due to habit.
