This kind of friendly I don't want.

Yes, you could write an apt front end that prompts you and asks "Would you like me to break your system?" The reason this hasn't happened is because it's a bad idea and nobody sane wants it. Breaking things *should be hard* and require much more deliberate action than just saying "yes" to a prompt you didn't read anyway.

A better reaction to the above prompt would be to ask "Who released a distribution with broken dependencies?" What is spectacle and why did it get into a release repo without its required dependencies?
