Very interesting tool, I'm going to try it as soon as Manoj uploads it.  
Actually, runtime libraries and other "service" packages (i. e. packages not 
intented for final users to work with them directly but for other packages to 
depend on them) should be removed automatically when the packages needing them 
are removed.  Are there any plans on dpkg or Deity to implemment this?
