That didn't even cross my mind! I think it would be best if I removed my
deactivation hook immediately in favor of register_uninstall_hook as scribu
suggested, along with making it a prominent feature on the options page,
part of the readme... at least then if some people wind up with remnants, I
can say I tried. ;)
