Re: setup graphical chooser : how to list orphaned packages ?

This is very common.  Suppose you have package A installed, which

until someone (usually the maintainer of A) changes this to make A
require C instead.

Maybe a column showing what installed packages are depending on B and a
column showing the dependencies for package A would be nice?  It would
help clear the confusion anyway.

the cygcheck-dep package can provide dependencies information,
I do not see the need for setup to do it
