Back in the old days, you could "expunge" things from your computer.
It was final and unrecoverable.

ex*punge ( P ) Pronunciation Key (k-spnj)
tr.v. ex*punged, ex*pung*ing, ex*pung*es
To erase or strike out: "I have corrected some factual slips, expunged
some repetitions" (Kenneth Tynan).
To eliminate completely; annihilate. See Synonyms at erase.

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.
