VBScript to Uninstall #AutCAD 2011

Not that I would normally publish something like this, but I thought it would be funny to mention that wouldn't it be great for the Revit/BIM world if this script could be installed on every computer in the A/E world.  That would sure help the Revit adoption rate.
A new solution has been posted to the Autodesk support knowledge base that provides a VBScript to automate the uninstallation of AutoCAD 2011, English:
2011: How to perform an automated uninstallation of AutoCAD
When run, the script will detect and uninstall 32-bit or 64-bit versions of English AutoCAD 2011 and language pack and will provide the option to also uninstall the AutoCAD 2011 Subscription Advantage Pack, the AutoCAD WS plug-in for AutoCAD 2011, and the AutoCAD 2011 VBA Enabler. It will then remove residual folders and registry keys related to the uninstalled product and plug-ins.
As with all such tools, please read the warnings and disclaimers and use at your own discretion. If you have comments or suggestions for improvements to this script, you can post them here or email them to withoutanet@autodesk.com.
Note: The provided script only uninstalls the English version of AutoCAD 2011 however someone with VBScript experience and adequate knowledge of how a product installs itself could likely adapt the script to other products or languages. I'm just sayin'…
