I think there are cases where users want to remove a menu entry _without_
uninstalling the underlying package, though.
For instance, I might want to remove the "address book" menu entry, since I
know that I always fire up my address book from my email client...
Also, if a package installs several menu entries, uninstalling the package
(or offering to do so), would remove other entries, would be a very
unwanted side effect.
I think it's a bit wrong to think "one menu entry == one package",
that's just not the case.
