[Python-apps-team] Bug#837591: leaves user (and files?) behind on purge

Package: irker
Version: 2.13+dfsg-1
Severity: serious

Version 2.13 of the debian package introduces a regression where the
`irker` user is left behind when the package is removed.

I understand why that was done (files were left behind unowned), but I
was expecting the user to be removed during purge (as opposed to
remove) at least.

If there are files left behind by the program, they should be removed
as well.
