Forced to use svn delete?

From: Stephen Dranger <sdrang1_at_uic.edu>

I am running an archive in which users connect through ftp. They are not
computer-savvy enough to connect through the svn server or know how to
use svn add and svn delete.
What I have right now is a system in which users add, remove, and change
files through ftp. I have a cron script running in the background that
will periodically svn add * --force and then commit. The problem is that
when users delete or move a file, svn cannot handle the fact that the
files were not deleted using svn delete.

Is there any method I can use to get svn to automatically remove files
that are not present in the local version of the archive? The only other
way I can see of doing this is to write a script to copy all the files
that are not present in the local archive from a copy of the current
revision, then svn delete them. But this sounds too painful and it seems
like svn should have a way of handling this situation.

Please help,
--Stephen
