If you use aptitude for everything, it will keep track of packages that are 
automatically installed when a specific package is installed. For instance, 
if I install a package that pulls in libpq4, I can remove that package and 
aptitude will remove the libpg4 assuming I haven't installed anything else 
that depends on it. I believe this functionality would address what you want. 
The key is that you have to use aptitude for all package 
installation/uninstallation tasks.
