Thanks for the programmatic approach, that's exactly what I was looking for.

comment How can I set up aptitude-curses so that it doesn't automatically select *recommended* packages?
Thank you, I guess this under the hood modifies the apt.conf file. I wish I could accept two answers, I'm accepting @izx 's one because it is more comprehensive.

I am ashamed to admit that the per invocation method suits me better. Ashamed because it was in the manpage :). I really appreciate the permanent method, though, I'll see if most of the time I use it without recommends and might just set it permanently if that is the case.

comment How to programmatically swap the caps lock and esc keys?
The gconf option is exactly what I was looking for, however your configuration was turning the caps lock into an escape key and the escape key into a tab key. I changed the setting manually again and took a look at the value in gconf-editor, it was actually [caps<tab>caps:swapescape]. Everything works now, I'm accepting your answer and suggest that you edit it to change the value for future reference. Thanks.

Be careful, though, once you get used to having them swapped, it gets awkward when you have to work on anybody else's keyboard :)
