`/var/etc/frr' also contains config files

Removing the leftover files is fine but I don't think this package needs the ability to reset/wipe the config. Too dangerous.
Could it be made an option on package removal to 'purge' the package while removing all configuration? I ran into an issue when trying to wipe the package to re-configure from scratch as I am trying to narrow down a problem with BGP.

That would likely cause more harm in the long run, very few people would ever need to completely purge the configuration. It's using a cannon to swat a fly, and carefully/correctly removing config sections completely by hand is sufficient for the rare cases it's necessary.
