This is hrev46950.
As we all know, PackageInstaller is worlds behind our new real package management. It spreads a PKG's files all over the place. Uninstalling is a drag...
I see that there's a .pdb file in the ~/config/packages folder. Could that be used, by opening it with PackageInstaller, to uninstall it cleanly?
Alternatively, could PackageInstaller add a SYS:PACKAGE attribute to every file it puts anywhere. Then the savvy user can query for it.
The .pdb route would be much more userfriendly of course...
