[Emerald] Feature Suggestion

I don't about anyone else, but orphaned home directories are a constant
problem for me. I try to stay on top of it, of course, but it doesn't
always work out that way. Now that we've automated the process of creating
home directories and have Serv-U authenticating through Emerald, the problem
can only get worse (in other words, yes, I am getting spoiled). :D I
realize that this could probably be done with some kind of stored procedure
and trigger, but I wouldn't know where to start.

Would it be possible, in an upcoming release of Emerald, to include a
feature for deleting a user's ftp directory at the same time his MBR is
deleted? It would have to be understood by the person deleting the record
that this was going to happen, but that should be a non-issue since we're
only supposed to allow those we trust to delete records anyway. To clarify,
this would only occur when an MBR is *deleted* not when an account is simply
in arrears. For those that don't want this feature, perhaps it could be
disabled in Emerald Admin.
