Although from what I can tell this is not possible with Subversion  since part of the transaction is to create a tmp file and then  delete it. If you disallow DELETE from apache you cannot do a commit.

You should be able to write a pre-commit hook that does what your  manager wants, something like this:

if (the user is not one of those allowed to delete) {
    get a list of things modified in the transaction
    if (any of them is a delete) {
        echo "You're not allowed to delete" 1>&2
        exit 1
exit 0

I am not a programmer so writting this is not something I could do easily... can you point in the right direction for learning how to do this?
