Well, you should've read the absolutely wellwritten doc of aptitude. And there you would have discovered, that aptitude takes painstakingly care of ALL the dependencies the guys of whatever Debian-programm have stipulated for installation or removal of their brainchild.
So where's your problem now?
Just following the aptitude-warnings when you want to delete f.i. "esd" and then deciding with your brain(!) if you want to say YES or NO, is that too much?? Aptitude won't let you destroy your OS and environment without severely warning and YOU deliberately overriding these and going your own stubborn way.
Just follow aptitude and you will stay with a good running system!
