You should ask on the Subversion mailing list about that kind of feature.

When we call svn_client_delete(), the file is automatically removed from
the working copy. Now even if we would first make a copy of the file,
call svn_client_delete() and then copy the file back, it still would get
deleted on the next commit. Because svn_client_commit() automatically
removes files and folders with 'deleted' status (i.e. which are marked
for deletion).

So there's really not much we can do about this.
