Thanks for the quick reply Michael.

So, do I 'svn delete' in a working copy? I actually have all of the files in those directories, and such, in a checkout--so won't that remove them out from under the repo? I'm still new to svn at this point, and so I'm not quite sure how this kind of thing would play out...
