Automatically Delete Mod Dependencies After Main Mod is Deleted

As we all know many mods require other mods to run (which is fine in and of itself), but it can get really annoying as you are creating a mod pack (especially if you are adding and deleting many mods). It would be really convenient if the mod dependencies would delete when the main mod is deleted, so you don't end up with many unnecessary dependencies in your mod pack. I understand that this also comes with a level of difficulty because some mods require the same dependencies, but it would be nice if Curseforge scanned and deleted any unnecessary dependency mods as you deleted main mods. Even if this made the process of deleting a mod a little longer do to loading it would save a lot of time on the back end of creating a mod pack when you are trying to figure out if a dependency mod is really still required by any mod in the mod pack.
