Hey, does that mean that libtagcoll works with strings instead of ints
now?? Please don't say its true, packagesearch uses 'int's for reference
of packages all over - well I would have to map debtags results to ints

Only for my understanding: libapt maps to memory but because they use
mmap every change in the apt database results in changes of the memory
making a reindexing neccessary correct? Sorry for asking those linux
related questions here lately, but I really want to *know* my OS :-)
