How 'bout a workaround ??

Using apt-get to install something like "gnome-core" will
prompt you for numerous additional, but required, gnome
packages. The information page for "gnome-core" also lists
"suggested" packages. They are: gnome-help, gnome-panel,
gnome-session, and gnome-terminal.

Personally, I'd only install the apps I *wanted* and and other
packages that are req'd to run them. Using apt-get, I think,
will accomplish that.
