Please, please read the aptitude integrated help and discover what 'm' and 'M'
can do for you.
What you describe is a bug, not a feature: if anything in the meta package is
removed, aptitude will remove it automatically on upgrade when it is marked
as dependency installed ('A'). This is the big bonus of using aptitude
instead of apt-get.
