This isn't the right mailing list.  There's a Sugar mailing list for
this kind of question, but here is my answer:

tomboy is a depends of ubuntu-sugar-remix but mono is not.

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-sugar-remix
sudo apt-get remove --purge tomboy mono

This will install the metapackage, then remove the packages you think
you don't need.  As a result, the packages that called those packages in
will also be removed.

ubuntu-sugar-remix is a metapackage with a huge list of dependencies,
see "apt-cache show ubuntu-sugar-remix".

If you just want Sugar without all these dependencies, then don't use
ubuntu-sugar-remix, instead use the individual package names.
