Follow-up Comment #24, bug #41215 (project octave):

Philip - I think you're overthinking it. The only thing you need to do to
unload any number of packages is to revert the path. This is super simple:

  orig_path = path ();
  restore_path = onCleanup (@() path (orig_path));

  ## code that loads packages, runs tests, etc...

If this way of restoring the path does _not_ run PKG_DEL files in the
directories that are removed, then that seems like another bug report. But
let's not make this feature harder than it needs to be.
