Oh, come on !! I just tried "apt-get remove --purge gnome-bin" and it
sure enough will remove lots of packages. Some are even like this:
libgnome32*. But, it wants to add "extra" packages like
bonobo-activation, esound-common, and 20+ more. It also wants to install
gcc-3.3-base, gnome-control-center, and five or six more. 

Trying just libgnome2-common is a bit better but it still wants to add
some add'l packages. 

Heh, I'll be at this a while. :)
