I actually found a pretty neat demonstration of the new package
installation behaviour, by Nicolas Fevrier, posted on his YouTube
account: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5t91ylz3XJQ

Key takeaways

 - You point it at an HTTP repo, a-la Yum
 - It works out what is available on the repo
 - It works out what it should and shouldn't install

vs. 5.x, this seems like utter bliss. It's not quite Apt, but I'm happy
to see the improvement.
