If a user wants to remove his or her settings, there's only a ".purple"
directory to delete in the user's App Data folder. If there were
settings scattered throughout the registry or different locations on the
filesystem, I might see a valid argument, but in general I don't think
it's wise to automatically remove settings, or anything the installer
didn't create, even optionally.
