deinstall packages.  It's quite thought-out, for example it knows that
you need an MTA (mail transport agent) in order to meaningfully
install an MUA (mail user agent).  Further, it knows that there are
different programs providing the same functionality (eg sendmail and
smail), so to a mail reader it won't matter if you install sendmail or
