As discussed in the description of the repldiag tool, this cleans lingering objects.  Thoroughly cleaning the lingering objects in the environment, not just the ones that are breaking replication, happened to reanimate, or a DC known to be problematic is tricky.  There is a lot of work that needs to be done , particluarly in environments with lots of DCs and naming contexts.  The detailed process that must be followed is laid out here by Glenn LeCheminant.  Repldiag only automates his process.
