Hi 

I recently tried to remove some packages i had installed using the command 'sudo aptitude purge <package>'

Although, there seems to be some residual files for those packages left on the system. Is there a way to remove *all* associated and unwanted files using the package management utility... or perhaps it's not something i need to worry about, i just was a bit concerned about having a build-up of unecessary files over time.
