Automatic removing of unneeded .deb files?


I am trying to keep some order in my /var/cache/apt/archives/ and while
doing that I have not found a way how *automatically* clean this directory
of all unneeded .deb files. I mean, I have tested many packages which I
have later found unnecessary. I know that these will eventually be
autocleaned by aptitude (because they won't get refreshed while upgrading
and they will eventually get obsolete), but I would love to have some more
instant solution. Did anybody create a script which would erase
from /v/c/a/a/ all .deb files which are not currently installed?

Yes, I know I can do this with little scripting of 'aptitude search', but
call me lazy I would love to have already done solution.

Thanks a lot for any response,
