In light of other replies, I thought I'd drill down a bit
here: my usage is probably non-conventional.

870248  ./usr/share
878272  ./var/cache/pbuilder
1143340 ./var/cache/apt/archives
1181616 ./var/cache/apt
2069572 ./var/cache
2455612 ./var
4587268 ./usr/local/share
4798860 ./usr/local
7332060 ./usr
10730548        .

/usr/local has xscreensaver, qemu and mono in it, which are
quite big. /usr has /usr/src which has several linux
kernels, and as you can see, I have sid chroots there for
pbuilder. But I think /var/cache/apt/archives should put
that in context.
