In general, there's no such thing as removing a file from CVS.  You can
remove a file from a branch (or the trunk), but other branches are not
affected.  Similarly, when you have a sticky tag that's a revision tag
rather than a branch tag, the CVS philosophy (which not everyone agrees
with) is that you want that file removed from that tag but not from
anywhere else, which is accomplished by removing the tag from the file.
