This is where ignorance is most definitely _not_ bliss.  (Is it ever?)  I lag 
a long way behind you in knowledge of the nitty gritty.  So, there is my 
solution!  Get my head down and become more competent!  I'm all for avoiding 
buggy unwanted packages - but have no idea how to exclude them.  Other than 
by installing things one by one, of course, but it doesn't seem to be 
feasible for the base system.
