Not quite. My objection is that SVN can't delete data, while CVS can.
Losing data and deleting data are different things.

My filesystem, running XFS, has never lost data. I delete files every
day. Being able to delete data while never losing data are orthogonal.

It seems to me that the "don't lose data" design consideration was taken
a little too far, and "lose data" ended up including "removing data
intentionally".

Anyhow, I understand this not being a high priority; I'm just registering
myself periodically as somebody who could really use this. :)
