(Feature request?) svn delete only in repository

Hi Guys,

we have the following situation:

In a repository somebody checked in the file config.inc.php. This file
contains some configuration settings that are different for every local

Now it wouldn't be efficient if anybody can commit the own version of
this file. We have to remove it from the repository with svn delete,
but: We don't want to delete it from the wc's when the users calls svn

It would be nice if we can:

- call svn delete with an switch like --no-wc-remove

- the file will be deleted from repository, the *physical file* in the
working copies will not be removed - the file is no longer under version
control, right - but the file exists, the users have not to recreate it.
After this operation somebody can add this file to svn:ignore.

So this problem a colleague have had too - I think it happens sometimes,
you're adding file to version control and later you mention that's bad
if this files are under version control, but you'll not remove this file
from the existing working copy directories...

Best Regards
