It would be. But Subversion (the library) still complains. TSVN commits
each selected item in the commit dialog, not just the parent folder. And
the Subversion library doesn't like it if you commit a folder that's not
there anymore.

Try it with the CL client:

delete folder
svn ci folder -m "some message"

you'll get an error.

So there's nothing TSVN can do about that.
