Yes, you do want it deleted from the HEAD of the repository. Of course,
this doesn't change history. Your .jar file would still exist in a
previous version of the repository.

If you want to completely remove it from history, you'll have to dump
and reload the repository, filtering out the files (see "svnadmin dump",
"svnadmin load" and "svndumpfilter" -- and http://svnbook.red-bean.com/).
