apk delete should not try delete 'required-by' packages
when running ‘apk del pkg’ and pkg is a dependency for other packages, apk should print a warning with full list of packages that needs it, and then only remove it from world, rather than just exit with error.
We could have ‘apk del -r’ to delete the reverse dependencies recursively (current behaviour) and maybe -i to interactively ask for confirmation.
This would be more compatible with apk-tools-0.15.

del: add '-r' to remove top-level dependencies recursively and by default just update the world, and dump a lost of packages that are not removed. fixes #47.
