I see in IssueZilla that there's been some discussion on whether or not this
is a svnadmin feature. From my perspective, this feature should work as

First, Benny-Programmer does a

"svn delete -R xxx URL"

This would flag a given revision for permanent deletion. However, since this
is a dangerous operation (IMO), the deletion would need to be effectuated by
Joe-Admin using:

"svnadmin --compress" (or something similar)

A revision flagged for permanent deletion could be restored using

"svn --restore -R xxx URL" or something.

Of course, after a "--compress", restoring would not be possible.

Perhaps Joe-Admin could even do a

"svnadmin --restore"

to restore all uneffectuated deletions easily, when some newbie programmer
has made a mistake.

I don't know the inner workings of SVN, so if this sounds stupid... sorry.
