The whole point of Subversion is that once something is committed to the
repository, it is stored forever. So a SVN delete will not really delete
the file. It will disappear from the most current revision, but you can
always retrieve it when you access a previous revision number.

Actually, people often ask for a real delete (often called "obliterate")
feature, but this isn't currently available in SVN.
