There is no such thing as a "project" in Subversion. It's all just
files and directories. If you want a file or directory to longer
appear in the HEAD of the repository, simply "svn delete" the URL to
the directory.

svn delete file:///usr2/svn-repos/unwanted1

etc.

Of course, as Jing Zhau said, these "deleted" directories are still
available in the repository's history, so it won't help you if your
goal is to reclaim disk space or expunge sensitive information.
