...actually, would a mechanism like beneath implemented natively in
pacman be worth a feature request?

Just a thought. If you find the excerpt in the pacman logs where you
did the transaction got you into this mess, you might be able to
reverse just that without risking too much for the current install and
save you a complete reinstall. Ignoring dependencies is then not so
bad, because you then just install the packages again that were
uninstalled to get you into this.
