Installing/updating packages in APT (and some other backends) might
emit packages to be removed, so you might want to allow people to
installPackages on your computer but not to remove. In this case
adding a bool remove_needed to both methods allows PK
to issue Polkit and ask for the remove action just as we do
for only trusted.
