[Mono-osx] Proposal for Mono uninstall on OS X

Hello Wade et al.,
Still being rather new to the Mac it is my understanding that to
uninstall a piece of software I just drag the bundle to trash.
However given the nature of Mono and its /bin symlinks we need to run
an uninstaller script which is (for some reason) located inside the
original installation package. Having gone through this process
multiple times it turns out to be rather unhandy...
Today I uninstalled the software Flic4Mac, and it had the nice
feature of having installed an "uninstaller" package - a normal OS X
installer package saying install etc. in the GUI but running it had
the effect of removing the software from the system.
Wouldn't this be an option for Mono, too? My guess would be that the
existing uninstall script could simply be repackaged into such an
additional package, to be installed by the existing installation
package. Such a feature would definately simplify testing and
developing against different versions of Mono!
P.S. Any update on the "Universal" Mono packages?
