I have not implemented anything like this in the current patch, though
it is a very interesting idea. Removing a module from a parent library
that a child depends on will result in the behavior as 'jmod remove -f'.
I see Alan has a separate proposal that will redefine the relationship
between module libraries. If it's ok lets leave this issue until then.
The comment in the code will suffice for now ;-)
