Given that auto-pulling in of recommendations is the first thing I turn
off in aptitude after system installs - is there a simple way of telling
aptitude 'hey, I changed my mind, mark all packages recommended by the
currenly installed packages up for installation'?

I wonder how many extra packages I'd have to install to 'catch up'.
