I reordered the dependencies, to be simpler to compare:
=====
luca@gismo:~$ dpkg -s aptitude | grep Installed
Installed-Size: 8424
luca@gismo:~$ dpkg -s aptitude | grep Depends
 Depends: libc6 (>= 2.3.6-6), libgcc1 (>= 1:4.1.1-12), \
  libstdc++6 (>= 4.1.1-12), \
  libapt-pkg-libc6.3-6-3.11, libncursesw5 (>= 5.4-5), \
  libsigc++-2.0-0c2a (>= 2.0.2)

luca@gismo:~$ dpkg -s apt | grep Installed
Installed-Size: 4296
luca@gismo:~$ dpkg -s apt | grep Depends
 Depends: libc6 (>= 2.3.6-6), libgcc1 (>= 1:4.1.1-12), \
  libstdc++6 (>= 4.1.1-12)

luca@gismo:~$
=====

Except from the difference in size between aptitude and apt, we have:

- libapt-pkg-libc6.3-6-3-11 is provided by apt, so with aptitude we
  *have* apt

- libncursesw5 adds 584K

- libsigc++-2.0-0c2a adds 88K

Even if it's only about 5M more, sometimes matter (not in my specific
case, however).

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
