Still not clear.
This option, as named, logically must force installation of recommended
packages, not prevent.
Moreover, other options do have values (APT::Archives::MaxAge "30";), where
APT::Install-Recommends seems do not, or somebody forgot to mention...

Can we assume it must be specified as APT::Install-Recommends "false"; ?
