This does not sounds like a good solution to me at all. Not only is it ethically questionable at best, but technically unfeasible as well. Don't companies keep a backup copy of the code somewhere? The only way to truly ensure total "destruction" of the code is to create some sort of self-propagating worm that would hunt down and destroy all copies. I think anyone who tried something like that would get the pants sued off them quicker than you can say "dumb idea."
