Decluttering an Ubuntu install

A couple of packages I have removed on a Ubuntu Server install I did using the Minimal CD install method.
This is for an internal non authoritative DNS & NTPD server on the office, using a "rugged" minimal box, those that don't have a regular HDD, but a Flash one.
The poor thing only has a 200 MHz CPU, 128 MB of RAM, and 2 GB storage; but it does the job.

sudo aptitude remove mysql-client-5.0 mysql-common mysql-server mysql-server-5.0 mysql-server-core-5.0
sudo aptitude remove cups cups-driver-gutenprint hplip hpijs foomatic-db-hpijs
sudo aptitude remove cupsddk cupsddk-drivers
sudo aptitude remove radeontool hplip-data sane-utils

And the last one, which remove a lota of crud:

sudo aptitude remove evolution-documentation-en language-support-en thunderbird-locale-en-gb

The following packages will be REMOVED:
dictionaries-common{u} evolution-documentation-en gimp-help-common{u} gimp-help-en{u} hunspell-en-us{u} language-support-en
language-support-translations-en{u} language-support-writing-en{u} myspell-en-au{u} myspell-en-gb{u} myspell-en-za{u}{u}{u}{u}{u}{u}{u}{u} thunderbird-locale-en-gb wamerican{u} wbritish{u}
0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 23 to remove and 9 not upgraded.
Need to get 0B of archives. After unpacking 148MB will be freed.
