Bug Description

Hello everyone, has the ability to be used as a Python module:

def run(options=None):
    # return the number of upgrades (if its used as a module)

But (due to packaging), it's not possible to simple import it like

from apt_check import run

Would it be possible to fix that? Importing the module via full path is possible, but not really good coding style imho. I'm working on a Qt/QML version of update-notifier/update-manager for LXQt and maybe other DEs and don't want to reinvent the wheel.

Thanks for your time and attention!
