It does seem that your use case is more amenable to scripting. One of our
design points was to make the output parseable. Seems like you'd want to
just write a little script kind of like:

svn status --no-ignore | grep ^I | sed 's/. *//' | xargs rm

Need to deal with spaces in file names and the empty list. But it ought to
be pretty easily scripted into a quick little "wipe the directory for me"
