Even if that is a package that other packages depend on? Lets say I want
to delete an ancient version of gtk+, but arch ABC has that as the only
stable ebuild, while the rest are ~ABC. Do I remove it, as I may, and
break the whole stable tree of arch ABC, unkeyword hundreds of other
packages, or I'm just allowed to remove it but should really apply a
common sense as usual and you don't want to go into details in this
