Installing the pieces one wants by hand, for one. Automating that with a
custom meta-package as another, using my script for the automation as a
third. Using equivs to create a dummy stub for the unwanted packages
(eg, n-m) and using the meta package as-is as a fourth.
There are probably other, similarly straightforward options, but four's
enough for a start.
