Support unpublish workflow for depended on versions #12127
Inspired by @mcollina
This will likely need to be more than a client change, but there are changes we can make to the client to help.
Ideally, the next step will be for npm support to approve the deletion of the module version and to provide a response to the email. It will be beneficial if the checks in step 1 occur server side, in the registry. But, instead of waiting for that work to be done, there is no reason why we can't perform these checks client side.
So, since this went up, npm, Inc. has come up with a policy for handling unpublishes, with an associated discussion thread. I'm closing this feature request in favor of that discussion / policy description, if only because these are all changes happening at the registry level, and not in the CLI. Thanks for your time and the clear policy suggestions, Wyatt!
