The following (undocumented) incantation:

  ./ecosadmin.tcl --keep_targets remove CYGPKG_DEVS_USB_CORTEXM_STM32

should allow you to remove the driver package without deleting the
targets which use it. Perhaps this should become the default behaviour
when removing packages so that people are less likely to remove target
records inadvertently. Anyway, working with ecosadmin.tcl is certainly
more elegant and more scalable than adding a new target just to
accommodate a new driver.

That's great.
