    The point is to avoid the Windows "Where'd my HD space go" syndrome when
checking out new packages.  If I want to see some new program which requires
a library to be installed it is nice that Debian's packaging installs it for
me.  But if 20 minutes later I decide I don't like that piece of software
should I really be required to be stuck with the library or try to remember
what it is in the how-many libraries there are?

    Uh, no.
