Hmmm. Interesting idea, Suramya...
ben at Fenrir:~$ ldd `which apt-get`
libapt-pkg-libc6.3-5.so.3.3 => /usr/lib/libapt-pkg-libc6.3-5.so.3.3 (0x4001e000)

It's _possible_ that Joydeep's "apt-get" depends on libs within the list
you quote, but there's no crossover with mine.

In my opinion, KDE is the reason that Debian calls one of their releases
"unstable"; if it wasn't for that, they'd call it something like
"stable_but_not_guaranteed". :) I've uninstalled KDE from my system...
it takes up huge amounts of room, is very resource-intensive, brings an
entire range of its own problems, and is - in my opinion - just not
worth the hassle. There are people out there who love it, but I'm not
counted among their ranks.
