Removing packages you don't want is a tedious workaround. I have

I don't want installed, like the two OOo libs. I did this because I

Developers, please remember that many people in poorer countries are
turning to Linux and they are as much a part of your market as folks
in rich countries. Installations that squander resources such as disk
space will cause problems for poorer folks that rich folks can afford
to ignore.
