More useless than appindex?  More useless than bugsx?  More useless than 
treetool?  I used these three examples because they ARE examples of bloat.  
They're all orphaned  They have no developers willing to take them up and 
clean the bugs out of those packages by name.  By the simple fact that 
mencal's been ITP'd, it therefore has developer interest.  You want to get 
rid of bloat, go to http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp/orphaned and start
