A really "clean" delete is only possible when you have access to the local file system.

You can only make the content "invisible" by deleting it within subversion. If you step back to a previous revision, everything will still be there. So if you want to upload tons of stuff for testing and intend to delete it soon after, you'd be better off with a local repository which you can create new, fill with stuff, delete in explorer, create new, ..., until you know how you want to organize your repository. Once you're certain, repeat the necessary steps on a remote repository.

Otherwise you will just fill up your remote providers harddisk with useless junk which will still sit there, even if you don't see it in the HEAD revision.

Cheers
