"apt-get remove --purge" and "dpkg -P" doesn't remove user-wide settings,
it would be a nightmare otherwise. Why would you want to delete them
anyway? Imagine that a company decides to migrate to something else and
turns back to the base app in some time. The sysadmin should configure the
settings of tens or hundreds of users then. I don't want to be at his
place ;-)

Then the app needs a "forget settings" function.

Or the Debian-Developer needs to add a post-remove prompt regarding
whether or not to zap the user settings.
