Comment (by ciaranm):

 Basically, no, beyond what 'cave uninstall' produces. The reason you can't
 is that dependencies don't form a tree. They form a huge messy cyclic
 graph. Have a look at http://dev.exherbo.org/~ciaranm/resolution-neato.png
 for example: everything there in orange depends upon everything else in
 orange, and that's with most flags turned off to avoid having X in there.
