I think so.  I know of two minor (non-show-stopper) nits:

1) IF (and only if) folks have used the setup-snapshots AND they 
happened to use a particular version (dunno which one, sorry), then the 
foo.lst.gz files in /etc/setup that were created by this particular bad 
setup.exe, contain 0x00 bytes at the end of each line.

This has been fixed in setup itself -- but the bad .lst.gz files remain. 
  This *may* cause trouble in the future (when the .lst file is re-read 
for uninstall) but
   a) it only affects a few people
   b) it may not even be a problem (don't borrow trouble)
   c) it's easily fixed by hand

2) It seems that when uninstalling (or upgrading), if the uninstalled 
package leaves behing a directory that is empty, the directory is not 
removed.  Not a big deal, and certainly not a showstopper.
