You could have a look at aptitude, another (less) GUI-oriented interface to
APT. It uses an additional flag for all packets to know whether they were
directly chosen by the user or automatically added to satisfy dependencies.
This is quite neat because you can then choose which packets are really
important to you -especially if you have softwares installed without dpkg and
that relies on some packages that look otherwise as "not used".
This feature is really mandatory for me so I won't switch to another tool
unless it can provide it. :-)
