Well, you gave the answer yourself. Yes, i would propose to let svn have
  an option to really clean your workarea like a clean checkout where
the working files that are under source control remain.

IMNSHO, it makes sense as it is the last step everyone should do before
commit: cleanup everything NOT under source control, build and
(smoke)test again and then check in.

Maybe I'm used to a more strict SW development process. But when I blow
my checkin by forgetting to add a file, numerous people cannot work and
are waiting until I fix it...
