I wonder if it wouldn't be better to use the actual revision where the
file doesn't exist. If I "svn up -r0 filename", then that revision is 0
(but it might be something else, of course); if I svn rm a file and
commit that, then it's the newly committed revision. Of course, we
would also need an entry flag for "this entry doesn't exist as of this
rev", so that the code knows not to expect a base text. But when we're
reporting to the server, we don't have to check this flag and call
delete_entry(); instead, we just pass in the revision where the file
doesn't exist.

I can't immediately think of any case where it's important to remember
which deleted revision we're at, but it feels better to me to preserve
this information.
