Re: [PATCH 1/4 setup] package re-/de-installation from CLI

IIRC, when this was last discussed some people wanted the dependencies
to be followed and some didn't ("just install the package").  But I
guess it makes sense that in unattended mode it acts like it was going
through the chooser page by default.

Thanks.  Since you've found a different implementation, this hopefully
doesn't re-introduce the bug that using the back button in some places
will cause all packages to be re-installed.

Heh.  There is quite some code in there that isn't really used.
