SVN gets close though.

We're able to add stuff automatically with the "svn add" command in our
log file folders. We just haven't figured out how to get "svn del"
commands for any files that are now missing.

The nice part about using SVN for this is that deletion commands can
always be undone (since they're just versions). So you never worry
about losing data. Even if the client is compromised, the worst it can
do is issue lots of "svn del" commands.

I've often wished for some sort of "sync my local working copy up to the
server, automatically creating add/del changes". Instead, I end up
using TortoiseSVN's modification browser and do it by hand (which at
least works well enough). Maybe it's something for a later version of SVN.
