Is there a way of UnInstalling selected GUI Components unattended?

Is there a supported way of uninstalling selected GUI Components, like "Calendar Syncronisation for Microsoft Outlook", "SAPphone Server" etc., unattended, short of uninstalling the complete GUI and reinstalling it with a special crafted package?

So far I have been able to disassemble the components xml and crafting a vbscript that deletes the files installed, and adjusting the workstation package xml, accordingly.

This approach is, however, cumbersome and not very elegant.

Since the installation GUI supports deselecting, and uninstalling, single components, the scripting engine must support this as well.

The GUI Scripting environment is well documented.

Is there equal documentation for the scripting engine?

Or could there be undisclosed options for uninstalling components from the nwsapsetup commandline, or otherwise?
