that would be the hypothetical 'svn obliterate' feature, which does
not currently exist. it's a post-1.0 feature that people have
requested, but it's a fairly large amount of work to add. until then,
it's one of those "doctor doctor, it hurts if i do this" "well, then
don't do that" kind of things...
