Bug Description

Binary package hint: aptitude

Suppose package A is manually installed and depends on packages B|C, which are both automatically installed. Currently, this will keep both B and C installed, although only one of them is needed.

Aptitude should point out such situations to the user, so he can manually delete one of the superfluous packages.
