Quoted from the original post:

We dont want delete *always* the wc, but often, in the original post you
see that is only an option in the commit-dialog.
We are working with VB6 and after many problems with DLL and OCX, we
decided to work only with sources, not with binaries.
In our team the development and testing and implementation is splitted
on different persons. When i have the task to test a modul and
i fix some bugs in it, then i have to commit and delete it, because i
have no need to leave it on my PC. This is normal working cycle in
our team, sometimes i have to test 2 or more moduls per day.
We want less as possible sources on the PC, because everything is as
source and we often have to work at customers locations.

At least, to close this thread, we are very new to using subversion, so
it is possible that it was to early to request a feature like this!

Best regards
