It appears that Daniel Burrows (the author of aptitude) has figured out a way to infer the correct dependencies of packages installed with legacy package managers (e.g., apt-get). Consequently, aptitude does not keep a separate database anymore.

The effect of the changes (since v. 4.5.1 released June 15, 2007) is that aptitude does not list for removal packages intentionally installed via apt-get, effectively removing EagleScreen's objection to aptitude.
