Local copy of a directory deleted by 3rd party tool and replaced with a new directory with the same name

I have a local copy of a design. One of the directories is a report
directory. All tools I use generate reports to this directory.
During its run, one of the tools, Spyglass, is creating a sub directory
named 'reports_spyglass', which I've also added to the repository.

During subsequent runs, the Spyglass deletes the 'reports_spyglass'
directory and creates a new directory with the same name,
where all reports are dumped to.

Since the directory was deleted (.svn was removed), Subversion doesn't
see this directory as a local copy anymore and refuses to commit it.
The only workaround I found, is to 'svn rm' the directory before running
Spyglass, and then 'svn add' the directory after the tool
has been run.

Is there a more efficient way that Subversion can handle this kind of
situation? For example, define that the .svn directory for the
'reports_spyglass' directory, will be saved in the parent directory.

Thanks and best regards,
