After some more research, I can partially answer myself:
It appears that the aptitude running in the chroot happily ignores
echo "Aptitude::Recommends-Important \"true\";" >
echo "Aptitude::Recommends-Important \"false\";" >>
seems to produce the expected behavio(u)r. I also noticed a similar
disinterest in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/* on my 'normal' etch system.
Weird. Is that a general aptitude thing?
