Feature "delete file only in repository"?

Good day,

I'm using a complex directory structure as a working directory.
Many people use the directory (only 2 SVN users, the others actually don't
know about the .svn thing).

I'd like to deactivate the version control for some of the files
without deleting them locally.

My ugly workaround:
- Make a copy of the workingdir's to-delete file.
- Delete file locally, commit with the deleted file checked in the dialog
- [ok] (commit the deletion to the rep.),
- update working directory
- add the spare copy to the working dir and just don't check the
unversioned file to commit.

Works fine for one or two files but is no treat with many files ...

Any suggestions out there?
Would be a nice feature!

Best regards,
