It is, for the moment, a hypothetical question -- based on an experience
a year or so ago.  I'd like to avoid having the same problem again
(deinstalling and reinstalling something, then finding the reinstall
didn't work) without having an idea how to undo the damage of
deinstalling something that actually worked.  So . . . assume for
argument's sake that I haven't gone out of my way to create a package in
advance, for a sort of "worst case scenario".
