Part of the problem if you are doing manual installs and install
something with --force-depends, then apt screws up next time you
install something. IMHO it's more intuitive if it saw that, 'ok, this
package has beed installed without regards to dependencies - I won't
remove it when it's dependencies still aren't satistified'.
