Bug Description

Binary package hint: computer-janitor

Not strictly a 'bug' but can I report this anyhow?
Dell Inspiron Mini 10v running Lucid updated today. Package: Computer janitor 1.13.3 Ran computer janitor. Marked drivers I knew I needed as 'not to be removed'. After the cleanup, I found that some dependencies that the Broadcom STA third party (restricted) Wi-fi driver had been removed and rather than go through a lengthy procedure, it was easiest to restore from a partition image I had made just to be certain.

Suggestion: Have Computor janitor keep a log, and be furnished with an 'undo' facility for cases like this.
