svn del file without rm?

Is there a possibility to delete a file from subversion control without
actually deleting the file in the WC? I just added a few files to svn
and found a file I didn't want to be version controlled (before
committing). So I svn del the file again. Guess what: the file is
totally gone now. I had expected that svn del would just remove
the version control but not the file itself. As I hadn't it committed
yet svn del {repo}/file is also no solution. Is there a switch or
something to enable/disable the file deletion?

In cvs you can add and remove files as much as you want as this
only changes the version control info. For convenience there's
a switch -f which will remove the version info as well as the file,
but only if given explicitely. Could this be changed in svn?
I couldn't find a possibility to remove a file from svn without
it being deleted, so I know no work-around.
