| You’re missing the point. Apt doesn’t even offer the /possibility/ of the suggests/recommends. I don’t see their being added will make apt any more or less interactive than it already is. The default could be to prompt seperately for recommends and skip suggests, or even to ignore both and only consider them if you turn them on in the config/command line.
Either way, it’d give apt the ability to fulfil all requirements without needing to launch dselecy, which currently it does not, and for no good reason.
Personally, I and I’m sure many others find dselect to be un-navigable with this many packages in unstable, and no effective way to filter them besides the overstretched sections and priorities. I use apt-cache search|show and apt-get install because of this, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to consider recommends or suggests.
