If the button in pk-update-viewer is OK, can I ask for one more. Many 
times when I looked at pup (or now when I look at the same list in pk-
update-viewer) I feel like "Holy crap! Why do I have installed this shit! 
I wish I could remove it". However, I usually don't bother, just click 
"Do update" button (however it is called), and the crap is still in my 

Now, the situation with PK is much better than with pup, because it is 
possible to fire quick pkcon remove in gnome-terminal (or maybe to use 
even pk-application), but I think a button "Remove this package" sitting 
just next to "Update this package" (there is even space for it!) would be 
even better.

What do you think?

It would be very good idea.
