You can't be serious, listing both xterm and mozilla and claiming it's
minimalist?  First, rxvt is _much_ lighter than xterm (about half to
two-thirds the size).  Second, using "mozilla" in your apt-get will pull
in mozilla-browser, mozilla-mailnews, and mozilla-psm.  Phoenix (even at
v0.3) is a much better choice, but if you're looking for a solution that
uses only Debian pacakges, try Galeon or Skipstone.  Third, drop the
amusements linuxlogo and xpenguins.
