Bug#193367: emacs-goodies-el: Can't remove package properly

Package: emacs-goodies-el
Version: 21.0-1
Severity: normal

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:

 M-x apt-utils-show-package

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.
