svn delete

The 'svn delete' command is not the equivalent of a
mythical 'svn unadd' command. It not only removes
the copy mistakenly placed in the repository, but it
also removes the working copy. Fortunately, the file
whose name I mistakenly copied and pasted from the
wrong command line to add to the repository and
deleted after realizing my mistake was a very simple
4- or 5-line test script that I saw no reason to add to
the global repository.

If I had remembered this detail from my initial reading
of the doc, I could have copied the file to a location
outside my trunk path for safekeeping, but that seems
like an unnecessary step. I'm not sure what I would
suggest--a couple of new options for the delete command,
a new command, or something else--but it seems to me
that an add should be nondestructively reversible from
within svn itself.
