For that matter, debfoster is a good option here. You tell it
which apps you want, and it removes everything not required by
those apps. It's pretty handy on long-lived systems, because it
gets rid of old cruft.
Then, if you do a fresh install, just copy debfoster's "keepers"
file and you can easily install everything you had before (even
if the dependencies changed between releases).
