The mythical Palm OS X uninstaller

Palm's web site has a description of the Palm Desktop OS X 'uninstall' procedure:
Removing (uninstalling) Palm Desktop for Macintosh: "# Continue through the Software License Agreement windows by clicking on AGREE, the Palm Desktop Installer window appears.
# In the top left corner of the window, click on the dropdown menu and select UNINSTALL. Directly beneath this menu, place a check to select Palm Desktop software.
Having tried this about six times, I'm reasonably sure there's no such dropdown menu in the current release.

I did use the Installer's show files option -- the Palm installer puts a horribly long list of gunk in the System Library and elsewhere. No wonder this is such a festering sore.
