Sudo-trinity cannot be essential to Trinity as I have neither installed.

Does it get installed as a dep or recommends of a Trinity meta-package?

Debian users traditionally prefer sudo for selective commands only or
not at all, unlike Ubuntu. Sudo from Debian is installed here but I use
only su in the terminal and kdesu (not kdesudo) for a few root X apps,
as described in an earlier post.

I don't know much about desktop-base|desktop-base-trinity. Neither are
installed here. I use a selective Trinity installation on Squeeze with
LXDE also installed. Everything runs fine.

But yes, any core system component from non-Debian sources will worry
Debian traditionalists.
