I would be against reusing an existing option for that. It should be separate so it can be turned off if wanted (and possibly be off by default).

Another solution could be to make it part of the "release" target.

~$ scons release

would then delete the install dir before filling it anew.

Warning on double registration of rna types would be nice anyway and would fit that problem nicely I think.
