Usually what it means is "I need more space on my machine to store my
stuff".  Call that user YY.  The don't need to rigorously erase
*everything*; they just want to erase the stuff which takes up a lot
of space, usually the activity bundle (both in ~olpc/Activities and
the copy stored in the Journal).  They almost certainly don't want to
erase the documents they created with the activity; they can already
erase them individually if it turns out their documents are "large".
