which can be easily optimized by a small meta-package
and i maintain a bunch of them to have several machine
types quickly installed and any unused package removed
which makes upgrades and de-duplication-backups so
much faster

last but not least you get rid by no longer required
crap if you list there only base-packages without
their specific deps and this is one reason why ton
of years ago installed production servers are as
clean as a fresh install
