Good link to reference, Andy - thanks for that.

A colleague suggested the simple method mentioned in the first part
of that section - to remove all source files from a working copy,
copy the new tree over the 'skeleton' working copy, then use
'svn status' plus grep etc. to perform 'svn rm' etc.

This tool needs better indexing to ensure that it is spotted by those
needing it without having read every chapter !

Thanks again.
