Feature request:: Unversioning files (svn rm --keep-in-wc)

I've seen this request quite a few times in the user
list.

The request is basically to allow "unversioning" a
file. The only way currently is to copy the local
version, then remove and commit. This is quite often
undesireable, because you do not wish to delete other
peoples version when they update. You just want to
unversion it.

Max Bowsher once suggested this syntax [1]:
"svn rm --keep-in-wc"

...which I really like. The alternative, I guess, is
another top-level function like "svn unversion
<resource>", but that seems excessive.

I work within a large organization where many people
work on dev projects. It is quite frequest that
user-specific project files (such as those from
Eclipse or VS.NET) gets imported, or that someone adds
and commit them at some point.

In this case, --keep-in-wc would be excellent, to say
the least.

Any chance of getting this feature in, say, 1.4 ? :-)
