It would be the better if the auto-orphan option gave 2 options for each 
1) don't remove
2) don't ask again (when the user is sure)
since often it guesses wrong.
The current fix for false positives is awkward (doing an install in 
urpmi when the package is already installed) -- the right place to fix 
it is in the auto-orphan process.
