The tool seems quite useful. However, I had a big problem with it. I
tried to use it to uninstall a few inactive ports from the "Inactive"
ports UI. However, as it uses the "-u" option, it automatically
uninstalled ALL my inactive ports. This is counter-intuitive and NOT

I do not see any configurations about it as well.
