Right. (Here comes out my CVS ignorance:) Does CVS recursively delete  
whole projects or does this require some script that deletes folder  
contents before the folder can be removed? I dimly remember having  
tried to cvs remove folders at some point and it wouldn't let me.

This would have to happen in conjunction with my earlier suggestion  
about using commitinfo since unlike the Zope repo we really want to  
completely prevent checkins.
