Remove/purge in Adept

I think it'd be nice to be able to switch between "remove" and "purge"  
actions directly when managing packages in Adept.

Currently it's only possible to switch between them through "cancel  
changes" option, which makes "remove package with all packages that depend  
on this one" procedure a bit frustating -- you have to cancel changes and  
then choose purging in reversed order. If packages have circular  
dependencies (package A depends on package B which depends on A), there's  
no way to purge both of them with Adept.

The solution seems to be very simple -- keep both "remove" and "purge"  
menu items enabled at once.

What do you think of this idea?
