You can't remove directories in CVS through its normal interface (and
shouldn't "back-door" it);  instead, you end up doing something like:

  $ find . -type "f" | grep -v CVS | xargs cvs rm -f

to remove all files.  I did that on the CVS head when the main Zope
repository moved over.

If we did that on the trunk and each of the active branches in CVS, we
would be safe, without having to hack commitinfo.
