aptitude & recommends
due to the latest changes in apt (which installs packages marked as Recommends: by default since 0.7.7) aptitude — even if "Install recommended packages automatically" is not checked in aptitude's options dialog — pulls in recommended packages just like apt-get, whether called from the command line or interactively; cf. also #448561. the fix to keep both apt-get & aptitude from installing recommended packages is something like:
$ cat /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/15recommends
        Install-Recommends "false";
(also very useful for (p|cow)builder where installing recommended packages in the chroot is just wrong & takes a long time; cf. also #448562.)
