I'll repeat my claim that 90% of libraries are not used by more than
1- 3 apps. Only of those I'm talking. When there are 6 apps using a
library, 2 of them will break when you upgrade the library. Fact of
life. How do distributors solve this problem traditionally? Upgrade
those 2 apps together with the library.
Or how about using libtool versioning?
Cleaning up? For ROX-apps: rm -r ~Choices/<Appname>.
That is why hiding the settings is __BAD__.

This is not the only example. A lot people randomly delete
important/unknown folders. A friend of mine ended up saving all his
documents in C:\Program Files\Windows System Drivers just to prevent his
dad from randomly deleting them. Of course, he made sure that his dad
understand that if you mess with drivers you will mess up your computer.
If he didn't explain that, his dad will have undoubtedly deleted that
