Sometimes I see that pkg_delete says that MD5 didn't match so a file was
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?
