add option to NuGet to reinstall package
Sometimes references for a project gets messed up and the package that's installed (listed in packages.config) isn't matching what assemblies are referenced. It would be a good time saver to have an option/action on the nuget screen to be able to re-install a single package (ignoring any dependencies, etc). It can be done today with the uninstall, but then you have to search the whole NuGet directory and remember which version. When you have 10+ that becomes cumbersome.
Yes to this.. I waste hours trying to find broken dependencies in nuget packages as the NU1101 error only indicates the dependency that is missing, not what it is missing from. I now have over 200 packages so this is a complete pain.

Would be nice to have it in the VS UI

I found a command line solution:
Update-Package -reinstall -Project ProjectName
Removing my vote :)
