More complicated version: option to remove packages that depend on the named 
Comment 2 Daniel Robbins (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-01-18 23:14:24 UTC
emerge --zap? "depstring"
emerge --unmerge? "depstring"

Geert -- wanna give this one a shot?
If not, I can do it.  But I thought I'd offer :)

Ok, I'm in for it. :-)

Just to not forget : the initial version should either be like this :

emerge --unmerge <=cat/pkg-1.0

this uses the dep mechanism to determine which packages should be removed, or
similar to the ebuild version :

emerge --unmerge /var/db/pkg/cat/pkg-1.1-r2

which does the same as 

ebuild /var/db/pkg/cat/pkg-1.1-r2pkg-1.1-r2/.ebuild unmerge

This has been implemented, would be nice if drobbins could check the changes
since I'm still a bit unsure about the whole portage architecture and structure.
