Most of these operations will break your working copy if we do not
catch them. In many cases, only a new checkout will fix the WC. So I
cannot see considering this. Disconnect the project and leave the SVN
metadata if you want to do it.

We do have a property named DeferFileDelete you can set on folders in
your WC. This is meant to support tools that delete and then recreate
files. This causes us to ignore the deletes.
