-=head1 NAME
-apt-cudf-get - wrapper for calling apt-get with external solvers
-=head1 SYNOPSIS
-=item B<apt-cudf-get> [arguments]
-B<apt-cudf-get> is a wrapper that allows to invoke B<apt-get> with
-external solvers while ignoring apt's pinning.
-All options are passed on to apt-get.
-Normally, apt uses so-called pinning to select a candidate version of
-a package in case there are several versions available. This also
-holds when calling apt-get with external solvers. However, when it is
-not possible to find a solution under this constraint, it may be
-useful to relax pinning and to allow the external solver to choose
-among all available versions of packages in order to satisfy
-dependencies, not only those that are selected by the pinning.  This
-is precisely what apt-cudf-get does.
-Note that, when using an external solver, the proposed solution may
-contain any available version of the packages that are given as
-arguments to install on the command line without specifying a version
-For example
-    apt-cudf-get --solver aspcud install ocaml
-may propose to install any available version of ocaml, while
-    apt-cudf-get --solver aspcud install ocaml=4.01.0
-will only propose to install ocaml in version 4.01.0
-=head1 AUTHOR
-Pietro Abate and Roberto Di Cosmo
-=head1 BUGS
-Not all types of arguements to apt are correctly treated by this wrapper,
-in particular not the +I<pkg> and -I<pkg> shorthands for installation and 
removal requests.
