Right, on Debian/Ubuntu it's not too terrible (cloud-init's
dependencies are usually the biggest issue there and we manage to
avoid them by building our own images with no cloud-init), but on
Red Hat derivatives there are a lot of deep operating system
internals built on top of packaged Python libraries which simply
can't be uninstalled cleanly nor safely.
