Uninstalling Xcode 3 (w/o removing Xcode 4)

Hey guys, I have two copies of Xcode installed on my machine. I have:
  • /Developer/ (Xcode 4)
  • /Developer_3/ (Xcode 3)

I know that you can run the 'uninstall --mode=all' script, plenty of Google searches return this as the proper method, but I just wanted to make sure that running this script from the Xcode 3 developer folder won't remove any dependencies Xcode 4 has. (Eg. Do they share any executables/libraries that are stored outside of the /Developer/ folders?)

I think the underlying things - gcc and so forth are the same for both versions, so they are interdependant on the same libraries.

So you risk losing those libraries if you do a complete uninstall, so the safest unless someone knows more than me would be to just delete the folder and call it a day
