I don't think that is a good solution either. The problem is that one
guy's leftover package is part of another gal's important application
Currently, we manually obsolete all the dropped packages that "are problematic
during upgrades". The solution I proposed does the same, sans human heuristics
based on incomplete data.
I don't agree that manually asking the user to specify the list of packages to
autoremove is better UX. The user is prompted with a transaction summary. If
they see part of their important application stack going away, they need to
abort and figure out what to do. There is no "simply not remove this" option
