"Aptitude is the new dependency-resolving installer for Debian.
Well, not all that new, but it's newer than our old favorite
apt-get. Aptitude works harder than apt-get, which means you work
less hard. One of its most appealing features is when you remove a
package, it also removes any unneeded dependencies that were
installed with it."
