Over on kde-frameworks-devel, there have been several requests to bring back
`make uninstall` for KF5 and KF5-based projects.
KDELibs4 used to define this for any dependent projects (it's essentially
`xargs rm < install_manifest.txt` under the hood), and we could easily add it
to KDECMakeSettings (with an option to disable it).
As far as I can see on LXR, no project that uses ECM defines an uninstall
target, so I'm not expecting any conflict for existing projects.
CMake has made a deliberate decision not to provide an uninstall target by
default, but that doesn't mean we have to follow suit. Would there be any
great objections to doing this?
