Your subject sais "Bug/Feature Request". May I ask where the hell you
think is a bug? Or did you just wanted to make sure you got our
attention by writing the "Bug" in the subject line?
I really hate that - people always shouting "Bug!" everytime something
doesn't work as they expect!

1. It's not TortoiseSVN which treats normal deletions as SVN deletions.
It's the Subversion libraries (missing files are removed on the next
commit automatically).
2. If you had read the docs, you would have found a little feature
called "externals" which you can use.
3. Subversion is *not* CVS
