It uses to be working to the price aof a big patch.
Now, it doesn't compiles, and according to 


this would requires to rediff apt-rpm on git HEAD, and update the
patch. However, according the mail I linked, apt-rpm is unmaintained.

So I personally would not invest much time in it. 

It was a nightmare 5 years ago when I maintained the rpm, I doubt this
changed much.

And so, since synaptic requires apt-rpm, if the second one is broken,
the first one would also break.
