The only way I've found to do this is take a look at `apt-cache show
packagename`, which lists the suggests/recommends, and use this info to
install them manually.

Personally, I wouldn't want to ever install suggested/recommended packages
blindly, but I think it would be great if apt-get had an option to display
them along with the removed/new/upgraded package summaries.
