So you want to commit binary targets so that you don't have to rebuild
them, but you want obliterate so that you can completely delete the
binary targets from the SCM.

You mentioned that you have a wrapper that filters out the targets
for those who don't want them. Instead of shoving all the targets
into subversion, why not wrapper that copies the binaries to another
location, marked with the corresponding subversion revision number? It's
sounds like what you really want is a cache of built targets, and it
might be easier to implement it that way, rather than overloading the
*source* control system. You can manage the cache by hand ("oh, we don't
really use that branch anymore"), or even get fancy with some sort of
LRU algorithm.

about Exchange Server next.
