Sounds to me like a logical default.  Inexperienced or new users won't
encounter "unexpected" problems due to the lack of a cleanup.  Those
who know better can change the default and then know to pay attention
to what they are doing.  I have tried to follow this principle with
dtcl and Rivet.  Keep it simple for the beginner, and give the expert
all the rope they need to hang themselves.
