In which case if you need the space, you've already lost - IIRC, last
time I tried it installing more programs than the hard drive would take, 
dpkg (apt?) blew up messily and left you to pick up the pieces. It 
also doesn't handle a wide variety of data, leaving us to an endless
prolifiration of doc_name-lang packages, or Lang_Name Linux 6.0's (if
we won't or can't provide doc's in the appropriate language.)
