      Description

      For administrative/debugging/troubleshooting reasons it sometimes makes sense to allow an admin to uninstall an extension that other extensions depend on, assuming that the admin knows what he is doing and that he will eventually add back a working version of the extension he has just removed.

      For instance with rpm, you can do the following

      rpm --nodeps -e <packageName>
      

      to remove a package without considering the other packages that depend on it.
