[kwlug-disc] how to list *reverse* dependencies for debian packages?

What does apt-rdepends do that the following command does not:

# aptitude purge `deborphan`

Note that the above has to be run a few times until nothing is left to
remove.
This is because as things get removed, other stuff has its dependency change

and may no longer be needed.
