If foo3 is already under version control, and now you want it not to
be, but you still want to keep the directory in your working copy,
you can do it like this:

$ cp -rp foo3 foo3.bak
$ svn rm foo3
$ svn propset svn:ignore foo3 .
$ svn ci -m "Removing foo3 from version control."
$ mv foo3.bak foo3
$ svn st
$

foo3 is now still in the working copy, but is no longer under version
control. The svn:ignore property will prevent the directory from
annoying you in the status list.
