Nuclear option is a nice way of putting it :)

If a working copy points to a revision that has been "nuked" you may be in
trouble. If it's past the nuked revisions, you should be ok.
In 10+ years of subversion I only used the "svnadmin dump -> svndumpfilter
-> svnadmin load" sequence once to remove confidential data from the
repository which had accidentally been committed.

I also don't see a point in versioning .zip files, since they probably
contain generated stuff, but who am I to guess and judge what other people
are doing. :)
