I'll accept the multi-user issue - you're right that something _I_ install
(even as root) shouldn't affect somebody else's defaults, and I hadn't
considered that. But I still don't accept that it's wrong to set _my_
default handler for something I've installed to the latest package I
install. It's less trouble for everybody. If you're just "trying it out",
the issue is not changing the default, but _failing_ to change it back when
you uninstall the package.

Er, have you actually _tried_ using aptitude _without_
installing "recommends"? That's the default way aptitude works, and if you
try to override it for a specific package, it has a bad habit of trying to
remove _every_ package that was installed just because it was recommended.
Not something _I_ recommend.

No such package on my system.
