The libapt-front effort is to have a better API for APT than the current libapt-pkg provides. It should provide easy, but powerful and flexible API, one that would suit programmers of both CLI and GUI programs based on APT. Also, the API, if at all possible, should be exported to some scripting languages, like ruby and python (others covered by swig come to consideration, too).
