The svnadmin create command is needed because Subversion has to set up
special files for metadata in order to prepare a repository for use.
Subversion can't work without its metadata.
When I remove a repository, I am destroying all the files and history. I
simply delete all the repository files using the proper shell command.
There's nothing special one needs to do to inform Subversion about it.

Once the repository is gone, it's gone for good. All your files and history
will be gone. This is not something I would do in a production repository.
The only situation in which I could see needing to do this is because you
are testing or doing an experiment with throwaway files. If there's some
other reason you have for wanting to remove a repository, you might want to
post again and explain what you are trying to accomplish. It might be that
list members can offer more help.
