remote wipe question

Using find my mac and the remote wipe feature how complete is it? does it wipe just the users directory or wipe the whole drive so they have to reinstall?

I'm actually interested in the answer as well. Although, I recently removed my Mac from "Find my Mac" in the event my Apple ID is compromised. I don't want my home machine getting wiped as well as all of my iOS devices.

My understanding is that the device is reset totally back to factory settings - wiped.
