to clarify a couple of points that may not be clear...

 - I already have new package that installs files sanely

 - I am trying to provide %pre that cleans up the mess before the
install to protect early users from pain...

If it is absolutely not doable, I can pull out the cleanup code to an
external script, and make a release note saying "run the script".
However, users don't read release notes.

btw, the package spec file is here - follow the link and burn your
eyes... http://dev.laptop.org/git?p=projects/xs-config;a=blob;f=xs-config.spec.in;h=006af0fa0fe9ef528f054b72d29ef569e54a1d67;hb=HEAD
