I'm not involved in all this but there are reasons (which I don't know)
explaining why aptdaemon got introduced when the natural choice should
have been to decide to use PK.

Have you looked into those reasons and can PK fulfill everything
that aptdaemon does?

It would be great to have a cross-distro solution that's really
cross-distro and that does not force everybody into the lowest common
