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.
