Didn't know about that one. I use additional_reports, which does the 
same plus a lot more!

This is my base for finding out if an extension is used anywhere. If 
it's not a plugin, it's more tricky. Hopefully if some extension depends 
on another the author will have set the dependency and the EM will 
refuse to uninstall it. If all else fails, grep'ing the whole "ext" 
folder is indeed an option. It's pretty fast to do anyway, except if the 
extension's name matches some common word.
