[development] Removing variables
list at panda.id.au

I have a module that uses quite a few variables and would like to remove
them in my hook_uninstall() function, but I don't want to have to list
them all manually...
I see three ways to do this:
1 - Run variable_del() for each variable manually
2 - List all variables then remove the ones that start with my module's name
3 - Delete variables directly from the database that start with my
I'm obviously trying to avoid #1.
I've used #2 before (http://drupalbin.com/18718) but am worried about
the possible performance implications of running a foreach() on every
variable in Drupal... Is this good or not?
I'd prefer not to resort to using SQL to delete variables from the
database directly as in #3, but this may be the only recommended option...
What is the recommended way to call variable_del() on a bunch of
variables? I'm using D7 if that helps.
