Issue demoting s4 DC

I had tried using the ADUC tool, and it gave me a slew of errors and wouldn't remove the server either. I went in with AD Explorer and manually removed the relevant objects referencing the dead server(s) and that seems to have done it. I haven't seen any major repercussions from it, so I think I hit all of the proper ones.

Are there any workarounds to manually demote (for example, after a hard server crash where the server can't be recovered)?
The recommendation so far has been to use ADUC to remove the domain
controller as 'dead, never coming back'.
I would like our demote tool to do that too, but I've just not got
around to it. Patches or filed bugs welcome :-)
