purslane, revisited

For those who encourage (or tolerate) purslane, what do you do at the end of the season? Specifically, turn it under, or pull it? (Or anything else, for that matter.)
My understanding is that it propagates from cuttings, which makes turning it under a little concerning. But, it's rather dense, which makes me wonder if I'd be depleting the soil to just yank it out.
Thanks, G

Why not eat it in your salads? The same thing with dandelions. How can you afford to throw out good food? <http://www.nutrition-and-you.com/purslane.html

We do eat it, every day. But, there's still a lot that needs to be dealt with.

I'm a mulcher, and I don't have any trouble with it coming up through the thick blanket. If you do bare-dirt, that may be different.
For that matter, I don't have much trouble with it coming back if I just pull it and leave it to dry on the surface.

It's sort of a succulent. It seems dense, but that's mainly well structured water.
I set aside a few plants when weeding a while back, but I haven't been in a salad mood to pick any. On the flip side, it has been dry enough that they haven't grown much since I spared their lives.
Next year I may get some fresh lettuce or spinach growing. Then the purslane will get attention.
