 Actually, I believe Corel does include apt - its just not a GUI tool.
Also, I am sure that it has dselect; get out of X (or use an x-term)
and run "dselect" at the prompt. Be careful though, corel's debian breaks
if you try to uninstall the parts that are corel.

 Also, just for future reference, this is the sort of question that would
go on  the debian-users list; check that one out, it is very informative.
