Bug#193367: emacs-goodies-el: Can't remove package properly
I can't believe I never noticed this before, but it likely affects the
majority of Elisp package. See if my reasoning is flawed...
If I do `apt-get remove emacs-goodies-el' which is a pretty method these
days, or if I `dpkg --remove emacs-goodies-el', the _config_ file
stays in place. The next time I start Emacs, it loads the file. Since
I have not added a condition in this file about `emacs-goodies-el'
actually being installed, the elisp is evaluated anyway.
Then can do:
and get the error:
call-interactively: Cannot open load file: apt-utils
e.g. all my autoloads are setup, but they shouldn't.
A quick look at my system shows that the `gnus' package checks for this,
but few others. I know I'm guilty.
