Hi!
Superkaramba was the first one that hit my eye that was definitely not a
dependency. Subversion I do recognize as a standalone app, but I don't know
kandy, which I only assumed to be some "supporting" app in the background
... And it was just a basic pointer as to why aptitude *might* want to
remove an application...
