[installworld] Do We need /usr/obj

One of the servers I maintain has a very small footprint (it's a VPS).
It is set up to do a full buildworld/buildkernel every night.  That way,
when its time to upgrade for, say, security reasons, there is no build delay
(which takes nearly 5 hours on this virtual machine).

The problem is that the machine has really limited disk space for day-to-day
use.  So here's the question:  does installworld/kernel need what is in
/usr/obj, or can that be deleted once the build is complete?  This would free
up considerable space on that machine.
