Changes (by warmerdam):

  * priority:  major => minor
  * type:  defect => enhancement



 I agree this would be desirable, but I'm not clear on how to add it to the
 installer without a fair amount of work.  Particularly it would be hard to
 cleanup desktop icons which are created by per-package scripts and not
 registered centrally.

 I would note that all you really need to delete OSGeo4W is delete the
 desktop/start menu items and delete the C:\OSGeo4W tree.

 I have reclassified as an enhancement, and (subjectively) declared it of
 minor priority.
