Bug Description

In the report : https://bugs.launchpad.net/ppa-purge/+bug/944992

Packages that are not present in the default repositories are not deleted. After using the command ppa-purge, the repository is disabled but packages are still present.

In some cases, a user could need to force the removal of these packages to clean its configuration for example :

sudo ppa-purge --remove-orphan <ppa:<ppaowner[/ppaname>]>
