thanks for the pointer Koen!

to be sure I understand this correctly:
the INHERIT += "rm_work" setting will remove the work/ directories only?

the subject of that thread was removing source, and I don't want to hammer
servers by deleting and re-downloading the complete source all the time.
source/ directory is fine (and shouldn't grow much when updating).

also is there a special reason why this setting isn't enabled by default?

Thanks, Andreas
