Delete/Undelete modified working copy

I use TortoiseSVN as my svn client on windows. I have recently lost modified
WC due to an accident with svn delete through Tortoise. I was hoping that
Tortoise could be modified to move the deleted WC files to the Windows
Recycle Bin rather than completely deleting them, however I now understand
that it is SVN that carries out the WC deletion.

I realise that this can be prevented through use (or rather non-use) of
the --force option, however selection of this option is not available to
TortoiseSVN users.

So some questions:
1. Can the Windows SVN client be changed to move deleted files to the
recycle bin, rather than completely deleting them?
2. What is the rationale for the svn del command deleting the WC files? Can
a command line option be added so that the svn del command does not delete
WC files?

I understand this was the subject of some discussion a while back but after
searching the archives I cannot find anything.
