I obviously disagree. :)

Of course Meta-CVS can only delete directories from a Meta-CVS project,
not from a CVS project. :) It has a nice recursive rm (rm -R) to remove
entire subtrees. Of course, the removed files are just unlinked from
the directory structure; the restore command will re-link them in
lost+found off the project root, under cryptic names. To expunge
removed files, you use mcvs purge, which actually invokes cvs rm on the
versioned elements. 

By the way, I recently added support for versioning symbolic links.
