Force uninstall before install

Hi, I use InstallForge for my Java programs over at

It works fine, I even ship Java with my tools using InstallForge.

I have a question though: Right now the installer will happily overwrite an existing installation. Wouldn't it be cleaner to have the installer always do an uninstall first?

This could simply be an checkbox per project ("force uninstall before install").

What do you think?
