will ask for confirmation before removing any packages listed
in the HoldPkg list
- Added a --noconfirm switch for use with script automation
- Modified dependency resolution to prefer packages explicitly
requested on the cmdline instead of those pulled in by
resolvedeps(). Example, if neither "xorg" nor "xfree86" is
installed and "blackbox xfree86" is requested, "xfree86" will
be used instead of "xorg"
- Added patch from Jason Chu:
- Smarter file-conflict checking with symlinked paths and
with files that move from one package to another

downgrade packages when it needs to
2.7.8 - added post_remove scriptlet support
- added -Qs option (FS#854)
- a provisio does not imply conflict, to make a provisio target
conflict with anything else that provides the same thing, you
can now do this by specifying the provisio target as both a
provides and a conflict, eg:

conflicting package would fail even if the new package
"provided" it

it will ask to install itself first, then be re-run to upgrade
the other packages.

uninstalled package's dependency info.
