There is a difference here. Aptitude cleans up the dependencies
automatically when you remove whatever needed them. Unfortunately,
neither tool seems to be configurable to do what the other does.
The most important part, though, is that apt does not track
automatically installed packages on stable (etch) so it might have
been ages but not long enough ages for Debian.
Nice thing to try out when Lenny is released and I manage to get rid
of any etch systems.
