Description of problem:

There exists 'debuginfo-install' to conveniently install debuginfo on demand for some argument package.  

There doesnt seem to be (?) a corresponding command to conveniently remove the debuginfo on demand when disk space is tight or no longer need the package. 

(though if i remember there is an automatic periodic uninstall when accumulated debuginfo reaches 4GB ?) 
(at one point i think there was a 'clean the trash' button in the package manager gui but i dont see it anymore ?)

There should be a 'debuginfo-remove' command to simplify the removal of debuginfo of a certain package (or all) on demand for whatever reason.  
It would basically go into '/var/cache/abrt-di' and remove the dustbunnies.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

 rawhide

How reproducible:

 always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install debuginfo for a package to triage a crash
2. package gets all fixed, ya
3. debuginfo still resides on system taking up space

Actual results:

 dustbunnies accumulate.

Expected results:

 should be easy way to sweep the dustbunnies.
