whilst there's been posts listing magic one liners which'd do this, i
think this is a prime example of where i'd use a scripting language
(perl/php whatever) to either do the deletes or to output shell commands
which can be previewed/piped to a shell script.

i love the one liners, but you don't want them to be 'one-chancers'!

will keep my eye on the dundee utd sites for 404's :)
