One note on the current templates.  Right now, the following question is
asked at installation time:

It should instead be asked at purge time so that the behavior isn't
affected by what the user said at installation (which may be long ago).  I
just haven't had a chance to make that change.  That *may* mean changing
the wording slightly, although looking at it now it isn't bad.
