Everytime you do this you make it that much more difficult for someone
to track down why a dependency just broke, or why a version they needed
went away. You make a changelog entry when you add a version...removing
one is just as important.

This is a policy on the tree that you are needlessly breaking. If you
want the policy changed, then go do that. Otherwise, follow the
policies that are there for a reason. Contrary to what you may think,
you are not special and the rules apply to you as well.


Thanks,
