It is possible to add an option to force the deletion of APP to perform cleanup of sources. for example

sudo ppa-purge --remove <ppa:<ppaowner[/ppaname>]>

to delete :
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/yannubuntu-boot-repair-oneiric.list
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/yannubuntu-boot-repair-oneiric.list.save

In the report : https://bugs.launchpad.net/ppa-purge/+bug/944992

Packets that are not present in the default repositories are not deleted. After using the command ppa-purge, the deposit is disabled but packets are still present.

In some cases, a user could force the removal of these packages to clean its configuration for example :

sudo ppa-purge --remove-orphan <ppa:<ppaowner[/ppaname>]>
