Hey ! There was nothing wrong with apt-rpm, I've been using it until 
November last year on CentOS-5 before I switched to RHEL6. The multi-lib 
problems were exagerated and fixed, the biggest problem was the lack of 
development after the main developer moved to Conectiva, and the second 
maintainer to Red Hat.

But I do prefer python over C++ anytime, though speedwise it  was 
unbeatable.
