I'd like to suggest a better solution is not auto-deleting in
either direction. Even if the code were perfect - of which there is
no evidence - the people are not, Unless you're (generic "you")
planning to wipe out something huge (e.g. X11, or Gnome/KDE) and
know _exactly_ what you're doing ... it's like hanging a "Kick me!"
sign around your neck.
