I'm currently doing a bit of work on the libapt-front[1] side, and we are
having a very nice library integrating APT and Debtags data.  One cool
thing about the design of that library, is that it allows to add
different sources of information, and I'd like to have popcon data among

Do you think you could make a 'popcon' tool with at least a 'popcon
update' command that, like debtags, downloads popcon data and creates a
binary index to access them quickly?  I (or you if you do C++) could
then integrate that library into libapt-front.
