Feature Proposal: Configure Extension autoinstaller should remove be able to uninstall


If i can install automatically, i want to be able to uninstall. Easy task, as we allready have MANIFEST files, whould be nearly a 2 line solution

Description and Documentation

We have a MANIFEST where all files are listed which have been installed. We should be able to uninstall the plugin quite easy then. This should help people also installing plugins from fresh, not upgrading or simply remove them

Note that extensions built using BuildContrib are packaged with an install script. This script can already be passed -uninunstall (try it from the command line). However the uninstall is incomplete because it doesn't modify LocalSite.cfg.

Marking this merged to core. Foswiki 2.0 will disable a plugin when the extension is uninstalled. It's not completely deconfigured, but that's probably a reasonable compromise as you won't lose the configuration if you later reinstall.
