apt-get remove package.deb and see what breaks :-0

you only need :
	- base-utils
	- ps-utils
	- lib-utils
	- glib
	- procps
	- core-utils
	- file-utils
	- shell-utils
	- util-linux
	- deb-utils (for debian stuff)

	after intalling those, you can srhink it 80% by removing
	the tag-along garbage that came with the bloated packages

and if you wanna do it one file at a time, it will shrink to 
fit everyting into a standalone floppy and be a live system
	- and that'd be little trickier to do without using busybox
	which is what makes it fun without bzboz ( i hate the "broken"
	busybox )
