I'm not sure why you would have to edit config.xml.  You should be able 
to uninstall the dependencies manually via command line or the console 
without the need to modify config.xml manually.  The catch is that you 
need to know what those dependencies are that were installed as a result 
of your deployment.

At the moment there is nothing to remove the dependencies.  In order to 
be able to remove dependencies that were installed we would need to keep 
some use counts or something similar.  We had discussed this a while 
back with some proposals ... but at the moment nothing is implemented.
