debfoster. I have a tendency to install, try, and remove again, a number
of applications I don't always need. Debfoster is perfect to track what
I installed manually, and what has been installed to satisfy

Some might point out the fact that aptitude does that job too, but
debfoster implements this particular niche away from any dpkg frontend
available in the archive, so leaves you with more of a choice in that
