Auto-reconcile to current filesystem

This seems like it would be a frequent question but I haven't found an
answer in the docs.

Is it possible to manage the set of local repository files using the local
filesystem commands and then have SVN auto-recognize all the changes that

Currently I have to specifically tell subversion that I want to move, delete
or create each file or folder I'm manipulating.

The wisdom behind this seems to be that there are certain files shouldn't be
subversion managed and the svn tool takes the "don't manage it unless
specifcally told to do so" tact.

But in my case, I'd like it to take the other tact: "manage it unless I tell
you not to".

In more practical terms, I'd like subversion to automatically recognize that
I've deleted a file, added a directory, moved a file, etc.

Is there a way to automatically reconcile subversion with changes I've made
directly to the filesystem? Or am I forced to tell subversion about each
change 1-file/folder at a time using the svn delete and add commands?

P.S. Let me add that I'm using the svn command-line client to manage my
repository. I suspect that some of what I'm asking for might be automated
with some of the GUI tools. I'm still curious if what I want to do is
possible with the command-line svn tool.
