Flush logs, binary log index file

P: n/a
I'm trying to write a script to weekly remove MySQL logs, the general,
error and binary log files.

Following the MySQL documentation, I've written a script that moves all
current log files, then executes mysqladmin flush-logs.

My question is this on the binary logs (bin.001, bin.002, etc.): once these
are removed and flush logs is executed, the binary log files start over
with bin.001.

HOWEVER, the binary index file does not appear affected by the flush-logs
command; ie, if I'm up to bin.003 in the binary.index file, remove the
files and execute the flush logs command, I'm back to a file names bin.001,
although the binary.index file still has entries for bin.001, bin.002,
bin.003, etc. How does the binary index file stay current when you remove
the logs??
