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?
