Sometimes I see that pkg_delete says that MD5 didn't match so a file was
not deleted.

The manpage doesn't mention that feature.

That feature is good.

But I'd like to have an option (maybe -M) which means even if the MD5 (or
whatever future message digest) doesn't match delete it anyways.

I'd prefer to not use, -f because then that forces deinstall of package
even for other issues ("even if a dependency is recorded or the deinstall
or require script fails").

Is -M okay?

Any comments? Any volunteers?
