    Michael> Have you tried 

    Michael> python setup.py clean -a

    Michael> ? (like I suggested when you submitted this as a bug)

Nope.  I never saw a response to my bug report.  I assumed nobody had looked
at it.

    Michael> Perhaps this should be the default?

In my mind, yes.  Distutils is very feeble at dependencies.  I would rather
have it delete too much than not enough by default.
