No contact on lead conversion

Is there a way to avoid creation of contact by overriding lead convert functionality?

We want only an opportunity to be created upon conversion.

I beleive you have to use the getContactId() in the LeadConvertResult object.

Then have a process that deletes that contact.

From what I see in the docs there is no setDoNotCreateContact() method like the setDoNotCreateOpportunity() method.

I also checked the web services API docs and no such method there either.

Let the boards know if the delete contact logic works for you.
