That's an interesting feature. I can see that useful in some cases.

However, I probably would not use it in the example I mention in this
thread. In such a case, I would want to delete *some* of the video files,
but I would still want to keep others besides the head revision.

My vote would be to first have a per-file-revision-deletion mechanism.

I'm still wondering: can CVS do this? If it can and Subversion can not, I
might need to go get CVS fired up on my server (which I've never done
before). (Maybe Ben/Glenn already answered this and I'm simply not
understanding things...I'm just trying to make sure before I haul off and
install a CVS server.)
