So long as adding to svn:ignore is a side effect and not the cause of
the deletion, I agree. (svn:ignore cannot be the trigger for the
deletion -- I've got several instances where a versioned file that I
want to stay versioned happens to match one of the ignore patterns.)

I'm actually not too bothered about deletion on the local end, because
that's something that can be worked around easily (though it'd be nice
if you didn't have to). What I *really* want is some way to delete a
file from version control *without* deleting it from other peoples'
working copies when they do an update. eg. when someone has
accidentally committed a per-machine config file, I want to be able to
de-version it without deleting it from anyone's WCs.
