I wanted to just install mediawiki-extensions-confirmedit when the 
following happened:

root at server:~# aptitude -s install mediawiki-extensions-confirmedit
The following NEW packages will be installed:
   cpp{a} cpp-4.7{a} dbus{a} ...
   [ %< ]
   x11-common{a} x11-utils{a} ...
0 packages upgraded, 190 newly installed, 0 to remove and 17 not upgraded.
Need to get 739 MB of archives. After unpacking 1,199 MB will be used.

Wow! I just wanted a web server ;)

The majority of these packages is not needed IMHO. They are recommended 
by mediawiki-extensions-math or mediawiki-math-texvc respectively.

A cleanup would be great.
