apt-get remove will leave config files, apt-get purge removes everything
for that package, neither remove dependencies. apt will let you know if
there are packages left that only the one you just removed depended on,
and an apt-get autoremove will get rid of those, but that will only come
up if now other packages list them as dependancies.
From man apt-get...
autoremove is used to remove packages that were automatically
installed to satisfy dependencies for some package and that
It's all very clever from what I've seen!
