Are you talking about changing pkg_chk here, or pkg_rr? My first
interpretation was the former, but now I realise the latter is also

Just for avoidance of doubt: I use pkg_chk directly (remove all outdated
packages and their dependents, then install my wanted set of packages
from binary packages). I have tried pkg_rr and pkgin a few times in the
past, but somehow managed to run into corner cases that didn't seem to
be handled just right. So I would prefer that a reduction of
functionality of pkg_chk is avoided.
