You can delete a directory w/o messing up the repository. Everything
important to repository integrity is maintained at the file level (,v
files) and in CVSROOT. This will have an impact on working directories,
so the best thing to do is either move the files and log them via the
usual add/remove, or disable commits to the repository while you do the
move, and let everyone update afterward.
