You're right.  Those will only remove the branch tags; all the
revisions will still be there -- but unlabelled now, so nobody
will know what they signify.

You'll have to go through and "cvs admin -o" all the revisions on
the branch.  But be careful!  You could easily trash trunk
revisions by mistake.  And once trashed, they're trashed for
good; "cvs admin -o" CANNOT be undone.

It's probably better -- certainly safer -- to just leave the
branch alone, and tell everyone to ignore it...
