If you provide a crystal ball to TortoiseSVN it might guess what you intend
to do. We could of course implement a "remove from version control" action
in TortoiseSVN which just runs through this sequence of steps, but I think
it's not worth it, because it's not the most common use case to
un-version-control things. If it is one of your most common use cases then
it serves you right to run these steps manually, because after doing this a
few times you might start to think *before* adding objects to version
