OK.  Did this.  Quite astounding.

It was not at all as inefficient as I thought it would be.  However, get

dpkg: /usr/share/gnome/help/games/hu/games.xml%23ubuntu-arcade-maze not found.

This is only one of many examples:

brian pc:/XXX$ grep not\ found /tmp/foobar | wc -l

33422 examples!

So, it would seem that delete is not quite working.
