No, subversion does not have such a feature. But TortoiseSVN has a
useful feature for deleting unversioned files. Hold down shift and
right click on the folder and you should see a context menu entry
"Delete unversioned items". That will give you a list of all
unversioned items in your working copy, which you can then select for
deletion. That should make it easier to clean up the blood bath after
your IDE has finished ;-)
