I thought Iīd follow Markīs advice below and throw the question in here:
  Why oh why is it impossible to remove a file from version control
without deleting it in the working copy?

I know one can always regenerate it from a previous revision, it would
just be a nice feature.

Don't file it with us, you need to take it up on the Subversion users@
list. I have seen it come across the list several times and is usually
rejected. But I agree it would be nice if Subversion had a way to do
