Out of curiosity, why do you want to be able to have undead files lurking around? Isn't that just going to dramatically increase the risk of losing data, if you forget that it's a zombie and make further edits to the file, only to have it abruptly vanish later? And it increases the risk of confusing project/build systems too.

I can easily imagine use-cases for both of TSVNs current options. I'm having a harder time with this one.
