If they're in the repository, there's no reason not to delete them -- you 
can always get them back.  You could even give them a symbolic tag to make 
retrieving them even easier:

cvs tag Deprecated_01_20_07 my/src/files/*


cvs -f rm my/src/files/*

If you ever need to get them back, you can do an update using the tag:

cvs up -rDeprecated_01_20_07 my/src/files

The above is untested, so you should decide if it sounds like what you want 
and then check the syntax before doing it.
