On my usual machines I have installed only such packages that I need - without 
use of metapackages. On the test machine with Ubuntu I used TDE LiveCD - 
tde-3.5.13.2-ubuntu-12.04.2 - here is used metapackage trinity-livecd.

On my test machine with Debian Squeeze is therefore the difference 
between 'apt-get install tde-trinity' and 'aptitude dist-upgrade' abysmal:


apt-get install tde-trinity:

72 upgraded, 456 newly installed, 1 to remove and 31 not upgraded.
Need to get 339 MB of archives.
After this operation, 687 MB of additional disk space will be used.


aptitude dist-upgrade:

92 packages upgraded, 64 newly installed, 15 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 137 MB of archives. After unpacking 63.8 MB will be used.
