Since you have to run mergemaster on one machine anyway: mount /usr/src
read-only on one system and run "make delete-old delete-old-libs" on it.

Yes, it's one step more, but you will prevent to shoot in your foot by

either not shoot in your foot or to be able to cope with it, I don't expect
that every other user is able to handle it. See my other mail (from today)
where I explain my intentions to Warner.
