Ant and Custom Field Deletion

Has anyone succesfully used Ant to delete a custom field from any object (in this case Opportunity)? If so, can you post the destructiveChanges.XML for this? We've been trying to delete custom fields from both custom and "stock" objects with no success (though we can delete custom objects succesfully).

Mauricio Parra
As of Summer '08, the Metadata API does not support deleting custom fields, nor do tools that use the Metadata API such as the Migration Tool (ant) and the IDE.


Is this shortcoming noted in documentation somewhere?
