Keeping the current apt default of NOT installing recommended packages
and having synaptic explicitely enable the automatic installation of
recommended packages could be a solution, too.

Though, doesn't synaptic pass the list of packages to install to apt ?
I guess synaptic can add the recommended packages to the list all by
itself, in this case.

I'd really like it if we could keep apt-get as an advanced user tool;
aptitude can be used in all the other cases.
