directory not empty message

Hello list

When purging my mysql-server package I always get the following message:
Purging configuration files for mysql-server ...
dpkg - warning: while removing mysql-server, directory `/var/lib/mysql'
not empty so not removed.

How can I get rid of it ? I tried to do a 
if [ "$1" = "purge" ]; then rm -rf /var/lib/mysql; fi 
in the prerm script but it seems that it always gets called with 
"remove" as argument and postrm is the only script that gets called 
with "purge". 

Any ideas ?
