You can mark all packages as installed automatically (this will mark
them for removal), then mark all essential and base ones as installed
manually (this will keep them and their dependencies), and then work
your way through the rest, starting with the most obvious ones (i.e.,
mark xserver-xorg and your DE as installed manually, this will keep
a lot of packages). When you’re finished with the list, everything
not needed will be marked for removal.
