There is no issue there (as long as nobody else is using your VSS
repository at the time), and that's how I've always assumed it would
need to be done. However, what I asked for was actual VSS commandlines
to get a list of the deleted files. I don't have the time or desire to
go wading through VSS documentation to figure out the right
commandline parameters.
