Hi Nicholas,

Am I annoying you? I'm sorry if I am, that's not my intention.
Exactly what bugs are we talking about? Why does deleting user data
make it easier to fix those bugs?
Given that the "old way" of not deleting such data would still be an
option, I'm not sure why it'd make it easier to fix them.

Looking at Postgres would certainly be interesting. But I think doing
the right thing is more important than doing the same thing. And IMO
deleting databases (user data) is just too risky. Didn't we already
have a bug report of a user that lost it's data unintentionally?
