Truly "Clean" a working copy

An interesting idea...
Sometimes when I try to switch a working copy to a different branch, I have
non-versioned and ignored files that are actually versioned on the branch
I'm switching to. In such a situation, the switch fails because a
non-versioned item with the same name already exists.

To solve this problem, normally, I go to the "Check for Modifications"
dialog and check "Show Unversioned Items" and "Show Ignored Items". I then
sort by status and delete all unversioned & ignored items. I perform the
switch once more and it succeeds.

Do you guys think it would be reasonable to implement a special feature for
such a "Clean Sweep" of the working copy? Perhaps you could make this a
feature of SVN Revert. Have a "Show Unversioned/Ignored Items" checkbox in
the Revert dialog and checking those items would actually result in them
being deleted to the recycle bin. Any opinions?
