Garbage hidden around OS X?

There are many apps that have an evaluation period, say 15 days. They have to track that period somehow and not be fooled by a reinstall. So I got suspicious - how do they track it? My I worry that they might place some files in the depths of the file system - then I remove apps (usually useless stuff) and this garbage remains? Unacceptable. What do you think?

Download a utility called AppTrap. When you move an application or file to the trash it cleans up everything that was installed.

In Windows, Ccleaner does that, is App trap similar for mac?
