I am wondering: The main issue is that it left the system in a unreparable state (out of itself) ... so "essential" packages should be protected. But, is it generally desired behaviour to silently delete dependent packages? Would a message with "This would remove these apps, you really want it?" not be a good idea, generally?
But then, I might miss the supposed difference the Software Center should have compared to synaptic.
