If you do, that will be removed on every upgrade of `odig`, which may or not 
be what you want.

I wondered at some point if distinguishing temporary removal (for upgrade) 
from definitive removal in the metadata would be needed, but the question is 
still open. I know `apt-get` has `remove` and `purge` for this.
