yo, that is the way how linux works, for sure. but from a psychological
perspective, it might feel good to make 'tabula rasa'. also do many
people tend (me included) to install stuff and install stuff, so that
they don't anymore what was installed. and even if you remove that
stuff, the stuff, that was installed, because it was a dependency of the
previous stuff, remains installed. there are for sure clean ways to
handle that, but starting from scratch just 'feels' very different ->
you _add_ something (positive), you don't _remove_ stuff (negative). 

i am sure, i'll do a 'install from scratch' again once in the future,
even if it cannot be justified from a purely technical point of view.
