Bug#982268: apt: Please add a action override suffix for purge

Package: apt
Version: 2.1.10
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

the + and - suffixes are great, but some persons tend to purge packages
by default whenever possible, instead of removing them, and thus a
similar suffix for purge would be great to, to avoid a need to purge
removed packages after a complex operation. I suggest -- (double minus).

-- (no /etc/apt/preferences.d/* present) --

-- (/etc/apt/sources.list present, but not submitted) --
