Ouch!  Uh, some users may have directies and other things in here that they
would not want removed when doing and uninstall-reinstall sequence.  The
/home/poor-user-with-deleted-files comes to mind immediately.

Time allowing before the release, I could possibly implement this with
regtool as DJ previously suggested.
