I havn't tried Marc's script yet, but if it works as he says, it should remove all but the latest package versions in /var/cache/apt/archives.

Perhaps "clean-all-but-the-latest" would be a good addition to apt-get.

Only light hearted week-end ramblings.

To confirm, having tried Marc's script it *does* do exactly that - either with the option to agree the removal of each package or using the -d switch, to make it do it automatically. And it is the latest that is selected by default to be retained.
