Messing with the _account_ is not the same as messing with config files.
Give me a dpkg option that removes all config files but still leaves the
account alone, and I'll be happy.

You can at least see _some_ of the config files that will be removed
using "dpkg -L" but there is no way to get a list of users/groups that
will be removed by --purge.
