[Pkg-dkms-maint] Bug#571683: dkms: should dkms clean up after itself?

when removing a kernel which has previously had dkms modules built
for it, the user will see the following message:
rmdir: failed to remove `/lib/modules/2.6.32-2-amd64': Directory not empty
dpkg: warning: while removing linux-image-2.6.32-2-amd64, directory '/lib/modules/2.6.32-2-amd64' not empty so not removed.
this is because dkms doesn't have any cleanup code to remove the
modules and files it creates. would it be make sense to add some
dkms cleanup code to the kernel's postrm? if i find the time, i
will look into this (if it sounds reasonable).
