Jason has the man page covered.
I have not looked at the patch in detail. Given Andrew took at least a
quick pass, I assume it is mostly OK.
This does not stand out to me as a must have option (we can get very
close to this with -d and -dd), given this is going to be used to get
around dependency issues in system updates. However, I see some
utility. So I have to way up the small utility versus the added
complexity. I'll definitely make a decision in the next couple of
weeks, before we freeze.
I anyone else going to speak out in favour/against this option?
Andrew + Dave + Dan?
