Re: wise way to install cygwin packages

But I think even not involve in any new design or a new command line

big problem is, when I can not change a package's state directly into
'uninstall' without going through other states such as a version
number state 'nn.nn.nn'.  When I have to go through the version number
state (as necessary middle step according to current GUI installer
design), I actually automatically re-select (or re-active) other
packages that depend on this package I am operating on,  this is not I
expect and indeed create troubles.

This is also a well known and well discussed issue. The only thing missing is a (current?) patch.
