 From 'man apt-get' :

            remove is identical to install except that packages are 
removed instead of installed. Note that removing a package leaves its 
configuration files on the system. If a plus sign is appended to the 
package name (with no
            intervening space), the identified package will be installed 
instead of removed.

            purge is identical to remove except that packages are 
removed and purged (any configuration files are deleted too).

 From my experience, it is true, only the binaries etc are removed, YMMV 
of course, but I doubt it ;-)
