RE: svnadmin obliterate features

I've been on vacation so let me weigh in now. I need the obliterate
feature because I use svn as a product repository and not just a source
code respository. Any artifact that is out in the field, I want to
record it in a product lineup. These binary artifacts includes various
compiled fpga loads, bios and flash images along with the
C/C++/perl/bash source code.

As I understand it, the obliterate feature is difficult because these
binary submissions are deltafied so a revision history is required to
recreate them. Could we add an option to the checkin command to disable
deltafy and checkin the complete binary file? The obliterate command
would only work on this type of binary checked in files. The obliterate
command would then nullify the contents of the file but keep the file
around for revision history.

Regards, Brent
