One a directory's been added, it's nearly impossible to cleanly delete
it from CVS.  If it's infected people's working directories, you're
really screwed, because even if the SF admins remove it from the
repository, it'll be a pain to clean up on the client side.

Probably best thing to do is make sure you "cvs rm" everything in the
directory and then just let "cvs up -P" remove the empty directory.
Everybody /is/ using -P (and -d) right? :)
