OK, I've given up on this for the time being.  I'd like to just emit a
notice to the user advising them of the files that might not be needed
any longer.  But the corner cases (which I've documented in the source
code) make even that too much effort for the time being.

I suggest releasing 0.3 without worrying about this uninstallation
area.  In the release notes, just mention this stub app and lib
feature as a work in progress, which are doing fine except for
uninstall.  (Unless you want to code a quick message to STDERR?)

BTW no broken unit tests this time :)  No idea about the functional
ones though... :(


P.S. I'd help with release notes, but it's 3:15am.
