Now see, i'm not that dumb, i can use the manual ;)

so one would figure that force-all would do the job :

root at globlet:~# dpkg -P --force-all  libdspam7-drv-mysql
(Reading database ... 31099 files and directories currently installed.)
Removing libdspam7-drv-mysql ...
dpkg: error processing libdspam7-drv-mysql (--purge):
 subprocess pre-removal script returned error exit status 10
dpkg: error while cleaning up:
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 10
Errors were encountered while processing:
root at globlet:~#
