Deborphan is nearly perfect for this. Right now, it just keeps track of 
whether a package was installed to satisfy a dependancy, or because you
really want it. If instead of the y/n question it uses for this, it
asked _why_ you want a package, and stored the result, there would be
much interesting data to munge.
