As said in the past, this is something you should be asking for on the
subversion list. The subversion library is what deletes the file so
there's not really anything TortoiseSVN could do besides duplicating
the steps you follow. Personally I'd rather have it be able to avoid
the copy step, as it means you need more hd space.
