That was a long reply to someone who probably didn't mean for it to be
technically in the kernel.

Jim, if you meant why isn't it in the core distribution... that's a good
question. I thought Fedora Core 2 included apt in it, but core 3 doesn't
appear to. For some reason they seem to favor yum, which I stopped using
after about 5 minutes of seeing how slow it was compared to apt (plus, I
don't know if they have a GUI yet). I think up2date supports both apt
and yum.
