I tend to leave them there unless it's an application I'm really familiar
with as I find the samples tend to have pretty good comments and I might
want to go back and look at them.
I agree though, they do get in the way at times, but when I have removed
them, I don't remember pkg_delete every complaining about it... maybe a
warning that it couldn't find the file (which might be a problem if you
for other pkg_* commands)...
