[OS X TeX] How to safely discard and old distribution

I have been using mactex 2009 very successfully for about a year, and have just installed mactex 2010, which so far appears to be working great. My TeX distribution preference pane now has 4 options, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2010-64 bit (the one I am using currently).

It is time for me to erase mactex 2008, which I have kept but not used since I installed mactex 2009, and I don't feel any need to keep on my hard drive any longer.
Can I can just erase /usr/local/texlive/2008 or is there a different proper procedure for doing this?
