Subject: Re: Avoiding "Uninstallation"
Sorry, should have mentioned that in the original message - we don't
want to use "remove" because of the add/remove pair. We definitely need
to call the original process "install." I'm pretty sure we're stuck with
"uninstall" but I've hated it for years (although not as much as
*shudder*). I was hoping perhaps someone had found a way around it.
