Subversion keeps important information in hidden '.svn' folders inside
each folder under version control. So if you delete a folder without
using Subversion, that information get's lost too. And then Subversion
can't work properly anymore.
If you just delete a file, the '.svn' folder is still there and
Subversion will delete the file from version control automatically on
the next commit.
