No need to regenerate from a previous revision:

$ cp -p foo foo.keep
$ svn rm foo
$ svn propset svn:ignore foo .
$ mv foo.keep foo

$ svn ci -m "Removing foo from version control"

You could certainly wrap the first four steps into a shell script if
it's something you expect to want to do often.

If it were added to the Subversion client, what would the command be
called?
