We (Fedora Core) don't ship apt (ATM?), but there's no reason to make
the life of those who prefer apt over yum or up2date more difficult.
Especially after all of them switch to a common repository format.
And even more so considering that we don't have a GUI front-end for
Extras similar to synaptics (that I've never used myself, FWIW)

It's about choice.  It's not like we should decide whether our users
should use Gnome or KDE; GNU Emacs or XEmacs or vim or whatever.
