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.
