I know it is possible to delete a file using DeleteFile, but that doesn't seem to support signing the resulting commit. Hence, I'd like to be able to use TreeEntry, CreateTree and CreateCommit to delete a file, but I can't seem to be able to do that. Is there an example of deleting a file using these APIs I can have a look at?

Looking at our source-of-truth, which is the GitHub Developer API v3 (that this repo is simply a client of):
It appears that you could create a tree and commit it and the new tree will completely replace the contents of the previous tree.

I have not done this myself and don't have time to create an example, but it looks like this is possible.

If other contributors feel like cooking up an example for @bmcstdio, you are welcome to, and I'll leave this issue open.
