If they are just for testing purposes, and nobody cares about them at
all, then just bypass the cvs interface and remove them directly from
the repository.

``cvs remove'' does not delete directories. When you add a directory
to a CVS module, it stays for good. The deletion of a directory
is emulated by removing all files within it, and then checking out
with empty-directory-pruning. Of course, a directory may appear deleted
to you on one branch, but it may exist for someone else on another
branch. And you can go back to a tagged release of the software in
which that directory was not empty.
