Marius,  In reply to the space constraint and upgrade done to the entire OS.  
This was first solved in URPMI for Mandrake around 8.1 (Now called Mandriva) 
and AFAIK it has been ported into the dist-upgrade feature for dpkg/apt.  

One thing that would help IMHO is to break out the debs for the scratchbox 
environment away from the 'user' repository.  That way the temptation to 
install would not exist.  BUT they are still accessable by other means 

Synaptic will run on the Nokia if you need a gui.  Heck I've got in on my 
blackdog and that was even more constrained than the Nokia is.
