Well, there are at least 2 different use cases for 'unversioning':

1. There was a mistake and the file/folder should not be versioned at all
2. There is a need for an unversioned copy of the file/folder, but the
repository should stay the same

Stefan pointed to a solution for use case 2 (the 'Export' command).
Use case 1 is also supported, via the 'Delete, keep local' command
available in TSVN.
