But both are completely broken by design because they don't understand the
difference between something being dragged in as a dependency or being
explicitly installed. Applications can require other applications,
remove-with-leaves will happily remove those even if you actually want
them! package-cleanup --leaves even finds almost all applications, so it's
entirely useless.
