#11258: Clean up after building
  Reporter: Olaf van der Spek <olafvdspek@…> | Owner: vladimir_prus

Comment (by vladimir_prus):

 The point is that if a good idea is not implemented anywhere else, maybe
 the user demand for it is not very high, and it might not be the most
 important thing to address (e.g. compared to some of the documentation
 issue you brought up recently).

 As for the merits of the idea, I'm not sure. As Steven said, removing
 entire "bin" directory is easy, and doing this automatically by default
 will inconvenience people who might want to build repeatedly.
