This library provides the common functionality for searching and
managing packages as well as information about packages.
Higher-level package managers can depend upon this library.
This includes:
* retrieval of information about packages from multiple sources
* retrieval of packages and all dependent packages
needed to satisfy a request either through an internal
solver or by interfacing with an external one
* authenticating the sources and validating the retrieved data
* installation and removal of packages in the system
* providing different transports to retrieve data over cdrom, ftp,
http, rsh as well as an interface to add more transports like
https (apt-transport-https) and debtorrent (apt-transport-debtorrent).
