Yup! You're a quick study. You get an A. :-)

  % rm -rf cvs_repository/project_to_remove

?  Would this mess up the rest of cvs_repository in any way?

I assume that's $CVSROOT/project_to_remove.

It depends. You might have a problem if project_to_remove is part of a module definition in $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/modules. The modules file is, I believe, the only place where CVS creates dependencies on top-level directories in $CVSROOT. Mentioning a non-existent module in the *info files in $CVSROOT/CVSROOT is benign.

Of course, deleting a module from the repository means that it's no longer there (Duh!). Don't expect CVS operations in a checked out project_to_remove sandbox to work. But, you knew that, didn't you?
