Delete library clips and source media from within FCPX

Hi folks,

Is there a way to delete clips from an FCPX library and deliberately delete the source clips as well?
My scenario is: Copy a pile of folders from a different job; import those folders into an FCPX library; scan through the newly imported rushes in FCPX, deleting the irrelevant material, getting rid of the source media at the same time.

I appreciate this isn't the standard workflow, but this is a scenario where I'm very happy to trash redundant copies of media.

Has anyone got an FCPX workflow for this?
An obvious alternative would be to screen the rushes before import. While we're on that topic, what DAM software and methods are people using for this kind of sorting work and managing video libraries (in the tradition, non-stupid FCPX sense of the word)?
