If you consider it an application it is often confusing. If you
consider it a way of life, things get much better.

Not even necessary to delete the directory, except to be tidy, if
you cut out references to it.

Comment out or remove anything in ~/.emacs that mentions w3,
particularly anything like "(autoload ...)", "(require ...)",
"(load ...) or "(load-library ...)".

No, but some configuration _may_ be shipped out to another file,
defined in ~/.emacs as the variable custom-file, e.g. (setq
custom-file "~/.gnuemacs-custom") -- if there is such a line, check
that file too.
