Uninstalling a module

Maybe its a stupid question, but... How to uninstall a module?:) Themes can be uninstalled, but I cannot see the same option for modules.

Use the features page to set it to Disabled and then you can delete the module folder and log into the database to delete any tables it may have used. Before disabling it, if it is a field for example, I always remove anywhere it may be used since disabling doesn't remove any of these occurrences. I made a request on uservoice for module uninstallation a few days ago.

Thanks, that's the way I'm doing this right now, but thought maybe there is some more automated way:) RDPing to the web server, DB server and doing this by hand every time I want to test a new module version (or remove the unnecessary installed ones) can be frustrating...:)
