Then it's time to go over the entire package data base and make sure 
this is true.  When I update My debian testing system in aptitude, it 
often comes up with a liet of recommended packages that wouldnt interest 
me at all.  Such as, for example, documentation in Estonian.  Or 
plug-ins for hardware I don't have.  Or the like.
