Hi, Mike.  What would you suggest?

A config-file option of ``always-get-recommended'' (default off) might 
be okay, but apt-get shouldn't be more verbose, IMO, and intrusiveness 
of ``Foo suggested.  Get?'' is wrong -- we already have programs to do 

I think ``everything'' you need is more than apt-get.
