I think an "unversion" command should be a standard part of subversion: it can easily
I think what you're looking for is referred to as "obliterate", to eliminate a file and all traces of it in the repository. Adding large files and directories is inevitable in a group project. Somebody's going to import the original project software directory called "project-1.2.3" into trunk, and you'll wind up with "trunk/project-1.2.3" instead of just the files in trunk. That class of mistake happens all the time, and it's currently pretty painful to clean up.
