None of these options are currently possible with the existing Subversion code
(search the archives for 'svn obliterate' for the many discussions on this
topic). The only current solution is a dump/load cycle using svndumpfilter (or
its ilk) to strip out the files you don't want present. If you have been using
this repository for some time (i.e. pre-1.4), this would also net superior
compression of the remaining repository files (assuming you are using FSFS and
not BDB).
