Hi Tom,

subversion is a version control system and its purpose is that all versions
of all files that you have ever committed are available at all times. So
yes, you cannot delete the old file. You can get it out of sight if you
delete it, but the previous versions are still there. The only way to get
rid of old files is by using server side commands. This way you can
"rewrite the history" of your repository/server.

If you want to know how, read up on "svnadmin dump", "svndumpfilter" and
"svnadmin load".
