If you 'cvs rm -f' all the files in the directory (and probably 'rm -f' any
other files in the directory) and commit, I think the directory will disappear
on your next update -P.  If it doesn't, I expect that's a bug.

way, when a salesman calls, you can hold the receiver up to it and run your
fingernails across it until he hangs up.
