I installed the above mentioned .deb, set debug=1, and ran
'texpire -vvv'. Lots of relinking and duplicate deletions. One of the
result lines was:

triangle.general: 58464 articles deleted, 48246 kept

"Every citizen who has produced or acquired a product should have
 the option of applying it immediately to his own use or of
 transferring it to whoever on the face of the earth agrees to
 give him in exchange the object of his desires. To deprive him of
 this option . . . solely to satisfy the convenience of another
 citizen, is to legitimize an act of plunder and to violate the
 law of justice." -- Frédéric Bastiat (1801-1850)
