Is there any way to ignore locally deleted files on svn update?

Hi all, I have a (perhaps unusual) situation that I'm trying
to resolve, with no luck yet. Hoping someone here may be
able to help.

Basically, I have an svn repo, with a trunk dir that contains
a number of modules, which are all interrelated as part of
a larger project. So, something like:


The problem is, I've recently added some new modules that need
to be versioned, but that most people won't care about (yet).
Since the number of modules is fairly large, I'd like the checkout
script to delete these semi-superfluous modules
from the working copyies. But doing so, they are just restored
if the user does an "svn up" in the trunk dir of the working copy.

svn:ignore doesn't work for this, since I don't actually want the
modules ignored in all working copies. I basically just want a way
to "hide" them in the working copies of folks who won't be interested
in them at the moment.

Is anything like this possible?
