How to "un-checkout" from svn

Is there a way to really "un-checkout" something from svn? I can't figure out a way to do it from the docs, and my web searches have been fruitless.

* svn delete <path> deletes the files from my working copy, _but also from the repository when I commit_. I don't want to delete them from the repo.

* rm -rf <path> deletes the files from my working copy, _but not their information from .svn/_. Therefore, when I subsequently do an svn status, they are still listed and flagged as missing. I don't want that either.

What I want is a clean way to tell svn "forget I ever checked these out" so that I can clean up my working copy. So, what I'm doing right now is either manually hacking .svn/entries myself or moving the old checkout of the way and re-checking-out just the stuff I still want.

Am I missing something obvious? Or am I really the only person who's ever wanted to do this?

Thanks in advance for any help!
