sboremove from sbotools is one way to handle this. `sboremove foo` would offer to uninstall any dependencies of 'foo' that aren't required by other installed SBo builds. It's not foolproof however, since it's possible for example that some package is only a hard dependency of 'foo', but is also a soft/auto-detected dependency of another build. Still, I find it useful.
