Printing a list packages that no package depends on


	I have been asked whether pkg-order can print a list of all
 packages that no other packages depend on (useful in deciding whether
 to delete a shared library package or not).

	Well, all the required smarts is already in the pkg-order
 libraries. All one has to do is gather in the status file, run a
 depends on it to fill out the data structure, and run is_target for
 all the packages (optionally only a list of packages one wants to

	I may write a small (~=30 line) wrapper script that calls all
 the library routines in sequence for one, if there is interest in
 such a beast, and if I can figure out what to call it ;-).
