Since I use aptitude, I get all the "recommends" automatically (and setting
aptitude to _not_ pull "recommends" has other unwanted side effects), so
strictly speaking, I would think the adept updater wouldn't have given me
these while aptitude full-upgrade would. otoh, I thought I'd upgraded to
hardy via adept.
