What are you talking about? 'svn' will never destroy unversioned files.

For example, I have an unversioned file 'ktrace.out' in my working copy:

$ svn st
? ktrace.out

$ svn rm ktrace.out
subversion/clients/cmdline/delete-cmd.c:48: (apr_err=200005)
svn: Use --force to override this restriction
subversion/libsvn_client/delete.c:65: (apr_err=200005)
svn: 'ktrace.out' is not under version control

$ svn st
? ktrace.out

Show us an example of what you're worried about.
