I like this idea. IMHO, the commands rm, remove, and unversion
should be outright aliases of one another; anything else is too
confusing. Add an explicit --delete (maybe with -D for short) option
to allow users to remove the associated files.
I would agree that there needs to be a recursive option, at least.
Failure to have this option breaks consistency with the rest of
Bazaar (e.g. the ease of adding or moving directories). Directories
are first-class entities in Bazaar, thus operations on files should
also be possible on directories.
