Thank you for your help. This seemed to do the trick. My final script
is below. I still wish this would be included in the svn binary
somewhere, as it feels very much like a hack.

cd somefolder
svn add --force .
svn st --depth=infinity | sed -n "s/^\! //p" |tr -d "\r" | tr "\n"
"\0" | xargs -0 -n 1 --verbose -ixxx --no-run-if-empty svn rm \"xxx\"
svn commit -m "daily commit"
