Add option --dry-run for uninstallation process

An option --dry-run might be helpful in some cases. paludis --uninstall --dry-run runs the complete uninstallation process, including the checks for mtime etc, but doesn't alter the system at all. This can be useful for example when upgrading packages that changed their slot, upgrading packages from unpackaged and such.

Maybe it would be useful for --install, too, at least for developer purposes.
