This idea is similar to "world" file in Gentoo.

I was trying to think of a method based on generated queue files, but I 
didn't figure out how to handle the top-level packages which aren't a 
dependency of anything else.

In my earlier example, by looking at .sqf files I could figure out Z was 
not needed because it wouldn't be present in any package's queue file 
anymore. The problem is that B and C also wouldn't be in any queue 
files, but shouldn't be removed. Your idea of "all.sqf" would solve that 

Thanks for your input.
