[wpkg-users] Manual install

Hi folks,

just don't know if this is intended behaviour or only a missing feature:

I like to install a certain package by "wpkg.js /install:packagename".
If the host is known in hosts.xml, all is fine. But if I like to just
install this package on a host which normally doesn't use wpkg, wpkg.js
stops saying "could not find profile for host in hosts.xml" or something
like that.
Since I would like to integrate some packages from Wpkg into Unattended
and don't want to manage things twice it would be nice to install
packages without having entries for every unmanaged (by wpkg) host in
hosts.xml - or have I missed something?

Other problem, same direction: When uninstalling a package (e.g.
firefox15) it would be nice to uninstall all dependend packages, too
(e.g. all firefox extensions). Or is there another way to uninstall all
packages from one profile at once - again par ex. if I have a program
with a bunch of updates or extensions (office, firefox, ...) it would be
nice to say "uninstall (profile-id: ...)" and all included packages go
away ...

Thanx in advance for your answers.
