You shouldn't do that. That's the point of packaging - automatic
dependency tracking, functional consistency, and system
reproducibility. Do you have any technical reasoning behind your
intention? I mean maybe you concerned about additional few megabytes
of HDD size, insecure packages within the dependency chain, or
anything else.

With best regards, Peter Lemenkov.
