Make a backup copy, then do svn delete, svn commit and copy/rename the
file back.

If I understand you correctly, you would like to delete the file from
the repository (which you can do with the above procedure), but you
also want users to keep their local file after they update the working
copy. You can do this - assuming users have local modifications of the
file - which I guess they do since the commited file contains your
individual settings.

After you have deleted the file from the respository and commited the
change, users can update their working copies. Since the file contains
local modifications, it will not get deleted, it just won't be bound
to the respository anymore.
