This is GREAT! Thanks for putting it together. I've cleaned out over
100M of cruft.
I'd be interested in getting a more detailed explanation of the
difference between -i and -I. The best I can tell from experiment, one
can uninstall all packages listed in an island by -i. But the listings
of -I cannot be uninstalled because package not in the list depend on
them. If that is correct, how does one use the information given by -I?
What can one do with it?
