Oh joy, of course I sent it to Tom only instead of everyone. Classic me.

Wouldn't an uninstall option be a good thing for panda?
I don't know how insulated a Perl 6 package is from the rest of the
installed packages, but I remember on more than one occasion wishing
CPAN and Perl 5 packages had an uninstall option when an installation
somehow got corrupted.
It's planned: https://github.com/tadzik/panda/issues/99
Planned for a while though, patiently waiting for someone to take a
closer look at it :) But the way panda stores keeps the state of
installed packages is designed in such a way that it should be able to
automatically clean the unneeded dependencies after it uninstalls a
package. So: panda can't do it yet, but it's been my intention all along
for it to be able to.
