removing games and other cruff.

I just did a dist-upgrade (to R14 Jessie; exegnu) somewhat 
incorrectly, it made a lot of changes I hadn't intended but that's 
user error for the most part. one error was not filtering out stuff I 
consider junk, for instance 'games'.

I thought I'd try purging them the so-called easy way using kpackage 
but when I get set to remove kdegames-trinity, it _looks_ like 
tde-trinity will go along it. I know this has to do with 
'meta-packages' but I don't understand the implications.

one gets the same result from apt-get.

I'm happy, happier in fact, to do all of this using apt-get (or 
aptitude). I'd love a magical incantation or rather guidance on how to 
formulate one to remove this junk:
