I have inherited a site that makes heavy use of Features, and this constrains what I can do to permissions and creates dependencies that don't otherwise exist. Something as simple as turning off the overlay becomes a mystery.
Is there some way I can remove these features and give back control to the database and to dependencies declared in non-Feature modules? I'd sure like to be able to adjust permissions by visiting the usual permissions UI and making the change as per usual.
I see there is a Features Tools module that appears relevant, but it does not seem to address things like roles and permissions. And it's a bit discouraging to think that an additional module might be necessary just to de-Features a site.
