I have found CleanSlate (a wonderful idea) to be ineffective in dealing with  
large packages. I spend most of my time with a megabyte of packages and several  
hundred additional names in the kernel. CleanSlate was unable to remove them in
a reasonable length of time; I never observed it to terminate.
