No. You would have to ask for such a feature on the subversion list.
Naturally if there are local changes the files will not just be
deleted, but in that case you would get conflicts, and I guess you
just want the files/folders to stay where they are but not be

You can get them back again from the repo browser by going to a
version where they existed and then doing a Save As into your WC.
