Dumb question - but doesn't the git content get purged automatically
if you delete the references to it?

I mean, can't you just delete the 'gh-pages' branch and wait for the
content to fall out?

Or do ``git branch -D gh-pages && git gc --prune="Jan 24 2011"`` if
you want to lose it straightaway?

See you,
