More information from Julian Klode

"Sure, it's an option given to backends, see
pk_backend_remove_packages() - it's a parameter in the Dbus API's
RemovePackages() method. In the client API, you can specify it as a
boolean parameter for pk_client_remove_packages_async.

But it's not the kind of autoremove that would be correct for gnome-
software - gnome-software needs to remove "new garbage", that is only
packages that become unused as a result of the removal and not any other
unrelated garbage that has accumulated over time."
