This is not completely true, as you can use tags with "admin -o".
Anyway, I would *not* recommend this, as you are *very* likely to remove
much more than you wanted to. For example, what if a file has not
changed between two tags?

Thus, DO NOT use tags with "admin -o", unless you are *really*, *really*
sure you know what you do (and you have a good backup, that is).
