You can delete the branch tag with ``cvs tag -d''.  If you've never
committed any changes to the branch, that removes all traces of it.  If
you have committed changes on the branch, however, they will still
exist.  CVS doesn't provide any easy method of deleting them, you have
to find them and delete them (``cvs admin -o'') by hand.  Permanently
removing things from the repository is anathema to revision control
