I am and I still say it.

It is for me.
I haven't tried apt4rpm on Cedora Fore yet, but I have FC3 and FC4 at
home, and apt-get update and apt-cache search is WAY faster than 'yum
search' using the same repositories. Especially if it's been a week
or 2 and there are lots of updates. I'm talking 10-15 minutes with
yum on FC4, seconds on FC3 with apt4rpm.
I like the features of yum, but it updates headers slower for me.
