Sorry: my spring cleanup were a bit too aggressive :(

I've reimplemented those functions.  I'm very motivated to keep them, as
in my long-term plans Debtags::Package should be replaced by a
std::string, and I'm probably going to extend support for that as I
implement more Debtags functionality into libapt-front.

Do svn up and you'll find those functions again.
