# apt-get remove xlibs
(removes all X applications)
# apt-get install blackbox 
# installs window manager, pulls in X as a dependency

Once when I was bored I did a very basic Debian install (just the base
console system) and then did "apt-get install gnome-stones", just to
watch it pull in all of X and Gnome as dependencies. Worked, too. I
love Debian. :-)
