Sure, I'm not forcing you to. If you're just interested in replacing
synaptic then PackageKit probably isn't the framework you need. If
you're looking at the end users, and what they are trying to do with
their computer, it probably is the framework you should be using.

You're free to fork PackageKit and do whatever you want. I just think
you might have misunderestimated the amount of work this would require.
