The initial plan was to rewrite the front-end of Software-center, to make it simpler and lighter than the current one. Rewrite an entire application is IMO too much of work, and you loose all the "invisible" work done by USC. If you want to work on a separate program, why not, but it needs, at least, to be better than Synaptic, and have real advantages vs USC. You need to think about depends, memory usage, but also UI. There is no sense to do a software-center if the UI is worst than Synaptic. Also, package manager need to be very stable and well tested, it's an important piece of the system. Currently, your program is not ready to replace the 2 previous examples. If you want to continue, be aware that it will be more complex than you think to build it from scratch.
