Currently, the user can call delete to effectively un-add a file. Do
I think this is proper? Not particularly.

When I first started using CVS (which was only about 3 years ago),
there were some things I simply did NOT understand. Why was it that
when I would "add" a directory, it happened immediately, yet adding
files required a commit? Why was it that I couldn't delete
directories, with or without a commit? Why was it that obviously the
files I just added weren't really versioned until I committed, yet
somehow I could delete them? Delete them from what?!

All that aside though, I have no personal connection with the unadd
command. If the community wishes to lose it, that's fine with me --
one less thing to debug. :-) (and there are definitely still bugs
there -- I never got a chance to debug unadd or undelete)
