I had a bad experience with console-apt the first time I used it, but maybe I
should give it another try some time.  But I like aptitude, because it doesn't
do *anything* automatically - you have to select all the dependencies yourself.
Which is great if you're really paranoid, or you like getting your hands dirty.
