[OS X TeX] TeX uninstall is dangerous if installed in a non-standard place

Note that the TeX i-Package uninstall gives you an option to uninstall
"Everything", which simply removes the install location, e.g. by default

But if you have chosen another install location like /Applications,
Uninstall will remove /Applications completely!

Not many people install in a non-default locatoin and uninstall is used
almost never. Still, this is potentially dangerous so I need to put out
this warning now as I cannot fix it before later today.

I will change this asap.
