It's all part of the same problem - conflicts,dependencies, removing
critical parts of the system by hand! - they all need a way to provide user
feedback that the user is asking for something problematic. They then need a
way to be shown just the relevant packages to resolve that conflict.
I've been working towards this for quite some time now, and we are getting
close. Of course, patches are always appreciated :}.
