That would have saved me a *lot* of time about a month ago when I
went and weeded out all of my packages when my /usr filled up.
I basically did what you are proposing by hand and it took forever.
e.g. pkg_delete some_package - oops, it depends on pkg_xxx, delete that,
oops, it depends on pkg_xxx2, and so on, when in reality that only
reason any of those additional packages were installed were for the
original package.
