How to remove a file/directory from versioning without actually deleting it?

I'm a newbie to svn and (probably too) frequently find myself wanting to
remove a file/directory from version control without actually deleting it
- although I might well want to set the ignore property for it
subsequently. Since "svn delete" will delete (or schedule for deletion)
the file/directory, my current method is to make a copy of the
file/directory, "svn delete" it and then copy it back to its original
location. Is there perhaps a simpler accepted/standard way of doing this?
