Sorry, I meant, show the list of automatically-removed packages (ie, those
which were installed to satisfy a dependency, and are now being removed
because that dependency no longer exists).

Say, if you decide to uninstall man2html, one of the packages on the list
might be apache. Which, likely as not, you actually want to keep.

Some people have slow and/or expensive net links.
