No, that won't do what he wants.

I second that feature request, I could have needed that just yesterday: I've
put a file under SubVersion control but after a few days I noticed that this
file is better not versioned, so I wanted SubVersion to stop versioning that
file without removing the physical file.

Had to copy the file, do "svn rm" and copy it back into place.
