You don't have to deinstall anything when you upgrade, you simply 
install a new version that replace the old files with new files.

If you like to make a clean install, simply copy your own custom theme 
again into the shared directory.

If you want to have per instance shared directory, have one shared 
directory per instance, containing everything moin installed in 
share/moin/htdocs, plus your own themes directories.
