I installed texlive in aptitude - I opened up texlive-full, and rather
than select the meta-package, I went through manually selecting only
the bits I wanted. To be safe, if I didn't know what something was I
installed it. But I did manage to save several hundred MB by not
installing various language support packages etc. If I were to install
texlive-full now, aptitude reports it will use 678MB of disk space, so
I think that's how much space I saved the first time around? I think
that's probably accurate, as some of the individual packages that are
uninstalled report sizes more than 100MB.
