I though that apt-get clean should empty these two cache files, but they
don't.  What's the right way to use APT to clear the cache?

$ sudo apt-get clean && ls -lh /var/cache/apt/
total 19M
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root  36K 2009-09-14 19:55 archives
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 9.0M 2009-09-14 19:54 pkgcache.bin
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 9.0M 2009-09-14 18:53 srcpkgcache.bin

$ apt-cache policy apt
  Version table:
 *** 0
        500 metad/main Packages
        500 metad/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
