Heh, wow - how big was the initial install?
CentOS 4 shrank "only" about 32M (116M -> 84M)

Would be nice. I also thought about creating a repo
for FC4 vservers, but currently none of the repo's users works with FC4
based vservers as FC4 is just our desktop distro of choice.
Most servers/vservers are Debian or CentOS driven.

I will redirect all thanks to Keybits oHG.
They commissioned a clean method for removing useless (particularly
huge) packages from CentOS vservers for their Debian->CentOS conversion.
