	It should be pretty easy to implement as you can use something like the 
appendDependencies() function. IMHO we should add an attribute to the 
package entry to indicate wether to allow recursive uninstalling or not 
(in case several packages have the same dependency). A command line 
arguments for /remove: or /install: can be also useful.

	We really need this feature for a complete dependency handling in wpkg.

	Just my $0.02.
