deleting a branch tag

I have had this question in my head for a long time and have just never
needed to ask it, but it has now become relevant.  I have a large repository
with numerous branches.  Most branches are meaningful, but there are a
couple that are completely useless and are just taking up space in the
repository.  If I delete a branch tag, does all of the source associated
with that branch get removed from the repository, or preserved in place?

Based on the philosophy of CVS, my guess is that the source is preserved
(although if the branch tag is deleted, it would be nearly impossible to
find the source again, making the preservation of the source pretty much
pointless).  I would obviously prefer the source to be deleted along with
the branch tag in this case.

Can anyone offer insight into this question and recommend a course of action
that would remove the source associated with a particular branch tag?
