Greater control over Installation in OOB

Specifically, the ability to do the following behind a user-prompted action (i.e. a button click event just like all the other trust-sensitive actions):

- Uninstall the OOB app if it's installed.

- Launch an OOB app if it's installed (would allow for developing an experience similar to click-once)

        Application.current.unistall() is needed! Users are getting confused.

        Application.Current.Launch()

        Catch-22.
        a) Right-click gesture not supported on tablet pcs.
        b) Programmatic uninstall and simulated right click not supported.
        SO how does the user uninstall?
        OK I know--- plug in a mouse!

        Launch an OOB app if it's installed!!! +3 Telling a user to look for the OOB version is very lame... we need this fixed!

        Just as there is a command Application.current.install() should be unistall()

        Would like an OOB app to be able to uninstall itself programmically too.
