Yeah that's right. But why doesn't it (apt-get purge) remove those out-of-tree 
modules also when I try to remove the package? Is there a Debian package rule which 
says "only remove files which were originally provided by the package" and hence the
out-of-tree module (which were not a part of the original package (linux-image-)
gets left out and hence the directory is not removed since it is empty?
