But --force includes --replacefiles which *is* deadly in several
circumstances and hardly ever needed, because what it can do is this:

       --replacefiles
              Install the packages even if  they  replace  files  from  other,
              already installed, packages.

Using --replacepkgs or perhaps --replacepkgs --oldpackage is [more
than] enough, usually.

I have used --nodeps and --force in a few cases which have nothing to do with removing pulseaudio. The meaning of Safe removal of pulseaudio is that you do NOT do anything but rpm -e. If you get dependancies you rpm -e those first. Nigel likes to use yum remove but I am gun shy of that now :-)
