Ack!  Missed that one.

What do you mean by 'whole repos'?  I was thinking about
situations where eg. a project is imported without
following the naming conventions and need to be backed
out and recommited.

With the warnings given in the manual I'd figured it was a
bit too low-level for my limking.  It would be nice to
completely remove the erroneous commit (I'd made some mods
to use it in another project but forgotten to save it under
another name <duh>) but I guess it doesn't really hurt.

Do you remove the project with 'admin -o blah'?

I was reading the manual on the GNU site, but it seems the
one on the cvshome page has been expanded a fair bit.
