No:

] $ dpkg -s ash | grep -iE '^(Status|Pre-Depends):'
] Status: install ok installed
] Pre-Depends: dash

] $ (echo '#!/bin/sh'; echo "echo \"That's all folks\"") | sudo dd of=/var/lib/dpkg/info/ash.postrm
] 0+1 records in
] 0+1 records out

] $ sudo dpkg --remove ash
] (Reading database ... 133193 files and directories currently installed.)
] Removing ash ...
] That's all folks

] $ dpkg -s ash | grep -iE '^(Status|Pre-Depends):'
] Status: deinstall ok config-files
] Pre-Depends: dash

] $ sudo dpkg --remove dash
] (Reading database ... 133188 files and directories currently installed.)
] Removing dash ...

] $ sudo dpkg --purge ash
] (Reading database ... 133183 files and directories currently installed.)
] Removing ash ...
] Purging configuration files for ash ...
] That's all folks

] $ dpkg -s ash | grep -iE '^(Status|Pre-Depends):'
] Status: purge ok not-installed

Or have "prerm remove" run zopectl and save the output somewhere in /var,
and "postrm purge" delete the stuff listed in that file, then delete
that file?
