Instead of automatically deleteing the dependencies, I think maybe it
would be better to (with the use of a commandline switch) ask the user
deleting the packages if he/she wants to delete a certain dependency,
without letting the user delete the dependency if some other package also
uses it. (Does this make sense?) For example:

pkg_delete -d package-version (or some other unused switch for dependancy)

remove pkg_version_dependant [Y] ? y
remove pkg_version_dependant2 [Y] ? y

error: some_other_package depends on pkg_version_dependant2!


Is this a good behavior, or should it be more automatic? I like this
because it allows the user to choose if he/she wants to delete certain
dependancies, and won't let them delete those dependancies if something
else also uses them...
