You could try tasksel, which would get you quite a bit of it back.

I'd probably use dselect or aptitude, and just go marking things for install that look interesting. Then start the download/install and go strum on the guitar for half an hour (or four days, if you're on dial-up).

Neither of these is reinstallation one at a time, but you will have to mark one at a time to get a lot of what you want.
