Actually 'git rm' is exactly what you want to use. It will /stage/
the removal of the file, and then you can use 'git commit --amend'.
$ git rm *~ # will only work if the files are in the file system, if
not you need to mention each file explicitly
$ git commit --amend # you might also want to have a look at the -c
and -C flags for commit
