Some poiking about in apt's Packages list as described by sean will do 
the trick, although there is also a 'Priority: important' level, which I 
assume is installed by default along with required packages.

If the user opts to activate any 'tasks' during installation then even 
more packages will be installed. See '/usr/share/tasksel/debian-
tasks.desc' for the list of tasks, and '/usr/share/doc/tasksel/README.gz' 
to see how to interpret the contents of the debian-tasks.desc file.
