Of course, it should be only a last resort; I tried to make that clear.
I hope that in 8.2 we'll fix the problem in general, in a way that
prompts for which files to delete. This patch would be an interim
workaround for deployments to ameliorate the current problem of
non-booting laptops, and a failsafe for any edgecases we miss in 8.2.

As long as Sugar fails to boot with disk full, I don't know how I
can search the datastore in that way. We don't have the full query
interface available from the initrd.
