Add behaviour to the remove methods to remove the transaction's path itself. This allows us to write Remove(path) to remove the specified path rather than having to slice the path ourselves.

2 xen-clone
4 usage: xen-clone <bk_repository> <dest_dir> <orig_linux_dir>
6 This script can be used to 'bk clone' and build a xen and xenolinux image
7 from the master BK repository, either from a local copy, or from the
8 public repository bk://xen.bkbits.net/xeno.bk
10 In many circumstances, it can be invoked without any arguments and
11 just `does the right thing'.
13 The default dest_dir is 'xeno-clone', relative to the current directory.
15 To build xenolinux, the script needs a pristine copy of the equivalent
16 linux tree. The script looks in a couple of places on the local filesystem,
17 then tries a download from from ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.4/
19 The script also tries a number of optional UCCL site-specific operations
20 that configure the test machine booting infrastructure to boot the
21 resultant image.
