1 What should happen if an ebuild calls "die" in pkg_prerm?
3 The issue arose while trying to create a package that could not be
4 uninstalled except as part of an upgrade. The first thing that came to
5 mind was to have it die in pkg_prerm.
7 What portage does is *appear* to crash, but then continue along as if
8 nothing happened.
10 Does the PMS cover this indirectly? (Is there a reliable way to make
11 package removal fail?)
