Description:
It should be possible to cleanly remove a MySQL install.

How to repeat:
1. install MySQL 5.5.14 using dmg :

mysql-5.5.14-osx10.6-x86_64.dmg

2. notice that it is not possible to un-install it.

When you upgrade a 5.5 version, the previous directory is emptied (leaving the configuration file and data).

Suggested fix:
When clicking the original dmg, it should be possible to uninstall / remove.

Or at least document what files should be uninstalled.
