Package: libboost-filesystem1.35-dev
Version: 1.35.0-5
Severity: normal

Installing the package pulls lots of other packages (I used Synaptics):

Here is the list of all packages, libboost-filesystem1.35-dev pulled in.
These are no direct dependencies of libboost-filesystem1.35-dev, but 
libboost-filesystem1.35-dev was the one I choosed. Installing all those
is annoying - libboost1.35-doc is 149 MB in size, and I will never read
it. Just very few packages use boost.
