There is much to be said for this approach.  I effectively did the
same thing when I installed Stretch.  The last package installation in
the installer gives user the choice to install package *groups*
depending on proposed use of the computer.

I was very selective in my choices at this stage, limiting the
installation to such groups as utility and printer packages.  Most of
the bloat however comes from installation of a DE; I deliberately did
not install any of the DEs favoured by Debian.  Consequently I had to
install the x-window-system before installing the DE of my choice.

I want to do the same for my TDE installation.  To start I tried as
you suggested to install tdm-trinity and tdebase-trinity, but the
return message was the same one received after my first attempt
described in my original post.  I will now wait until after Sl�vik
deals with the dependencies issues.
