[pmwiki-users] Mass delete pages/group ?

To delete entire groups, (sometimes created by a user, by accident, or at least inadvertently, or no longer in use) I just delete the entire GroupName.* from wiki.d.
Actually, we use per group subdirectories, so I delete the entire subdirectory.  The group then does disappear from the page-lists. I don't recall having to delete the .pagelist file.  
For your other questions, the first question is do you want the pages to follow the PmWiki standard for deletion (renaming with a del in the filename), or do you want them totally gone (except for a backup of course).
