Netbeans module uninstall

I noticed the module uninstall feature using module manager very recently. I was pleasantly surprised by the inclusion of this feature in the netbeans 5.0 release. For others, addition of this feature may look trivial, but for me it is a great improvement to the usability of the IDE. I used to get frustrated because of the lack of such useful feature. I removed the user directory, if the updated modules are not installed globally, or reinstalled the whole IDE to get rid of the stale files corresponding to the modules I installed for testing purpose. Now with the uninstall feature this is deemed unnecessary, a huge improvement in my opinion.

I have not yet fully explored this feature, but believe it fully uninstalls all the files corresponding to the module. But what happens if I updated the module and found the update buggy. Is there a possibility to rollback to the last good version of the module?. Regardless, it is a very important feature.

Thanks, I also did not notice the button and was searching for uninstall instructions.
