Sounds like there needs to be a differentiation between simple deactivation 
(still there, could turn it back on) and permanent removal/uninstall (no 
options left behind, no files..).  I >don't< think that deactivation should 
cause ANYTHING to be removed from DB or FS... needs to be a different 
'button', procedure, whatever.
