not exactly addressing the config issue, but Rockbox Utility (the
work-in-progress installer for Rockbox) keeps track of the files it
installed and therefore can do a clean removal of the installed files.
This will of course have problems if someone manually installs files,
but it's at least a step.

I generally agree that moving all config data to a separate directory
would be good. IIRC this was general consensus anyway.
