   Since I am non-english I had to consult a dictionary now:

   - remove: to change the location, position -- but also to get rid
   of, eliminate

   I think the first meaning of "remove" is what our teachers tell us.

Interesting!  As a native English speaker, the second meaning is
relevant.  I have never heard of the first, although it makes sense
etymologically, as in `move again'!

I would use a word such as `move' or `detach'.
