Propose to delete data from deactivated persistent features
In #12109 we are working on a documentation patch to explain people how to delete the files corresponding to deactivated persistent features. Still, we shouldn't rely on having people ready the doc so much...
Instead what about asking people whether they want to delete the corresponding data when we detect that some features have been deactivated?
If we agree on this, I could draft a UI.

It surely is feasible, but not entirely straightforward. Do you expect from me a time estimate, or anything else?
Cost put aside, how important do you rank this compared to other work we want to do on the persistence assistant? (Rationale: even estimating costs has a cost, and I'd rather not spend 1h on it if the whole thing ends up being an unassigned low prio ticket for years.)

I have no data to know how important this is. I think that at that point I only wanted you first impression on this being further investigated. Now I have it (thanks!) and I'm fine keeping this ticket assign to me for me research (on the important and on a first UI maybe) without you spending time on evaluating implementation costs yet.
Maybe we'll get more hints on how to priotize different improvements on this UI if we do the work on additional software.
Unfortunately, such ticket looks like the kind of work that we have the hardest time to fund as it's neither core work neither fancy enough for grants. Oh well...
