There is now an UNMESSAGE file that gets displayed at pkg_delete time. That should kill a few more DEINSTALL scripts. All MESSAGE/UNMESSAGE files get concatenated together, and are shown at the end of pkg_add/pkg_delete with proper decoration, so that it's easy to find out which package displayed what. All `special' decoration in existing MESSAGE files should now be removed. The new display engine will decorate it properly with +----------- <PKGNAME> | | Your message there | +----------- <PKGNAME> borders. A lot of the existing code is getting shared, so that we can get finer diagnostics and a lot of extra stuff for free...
Lots of other interesting changes has gone into our package tools lately and kudos to Marc Espie for the hard work.
