I always asked myself whether there is a tool or some kind of
database at which one can throw an existing installation and it
knows about which files have to be there and where and which ain't
to be there (like such symlink relicts), maybe a hook in install,cp,ln
and what else is being used in the world install process. 
That way it could tell me what files are candidates for deleting.
