<snip long explanation>

Ctl-u before exiting aptitude (as many times as necessary) will take you
back to the status when you opened the program.  If you quit aptitude
before undoing, undo won't work.

However, if you press 'g' once and you are shown all the packages to be
deleted, you can then apply '+' or '=' to the heading or subheading
which says something like 'packages to be removed ....'.  Your choice
to hold or upgrade should be applied to all the subsidiary packages.
