But... that's one of the reasons you're using version control in the
first place, right? If you delete a file and realize you want it back,
you can easily tell Subversion to give it back to you. You can do this
in any number of ways including "svn merge" in reverse, "svn cat" with a
revision number, "svn update" with a revision number, etc. See this
section in the book in case you haven't already:
