I agree the autoremove parameter is needed, but surely only_trusted
only makes sense when you're installing? Or can you tell if packages
are signed when they are installed with apt? I'm still not sure it
makes sense as an admin has installed a non-signed file (as it
requires higher privs by default) and so you wouldn't want a user
uninstalling an unsigned file just as much as you wouldn't want a user
uninstalling a signed file.

I'm pretty sure we want to fork off a 0.6.0 soon as the number of API
changes is getting a bit out of hand.
