The installer maintains a list of original files installed and removes
them all.  It does not have any mechanism to remove files added later.

If someone upgrades udig it should remove all the original udig files
and then put the new files into place.  I imagine this would leave
the beegis plugin unaltered - which I think is a good thing.
