Why not a flag or two to the existing 'svn add' and 'svn delete'?

E.g.
svn add --unversioned
svn delete --missing

It would help

Not really. Since svn:ignore is a property set on the versioned
folder it could easily not include things that shouldn't be versioned
but aren't cumbersome enough that any specific user cared that they
showed up in the status command. Also there is no control of what
files someone might put in their WC, so the global (all users) nature
of svn:ignore can't possibly know enough for the specific WC that the
command is executed on. E.g. users might have little scripts that
are specific to their WC.
