I tried this before i wrote the message.  Yes, dpkg --purge removes the
conffiles; however, dpkg leaves the directory that the conffiles were in
intact.  It seems to me that dpkg should remove all empty directories after
a purge command is complete.  As is, the above "rm" command removes the
empty, and now unnecessary directory.
