Shredding private/confidential information‏

Hi all,

When deleting private/confidential files, I think it is a good practice to run them through a shredder, even when a limited number of people has access to the disk they are on.

However, when managing private data in an SVN repository, this becomes problematic, because SVN copies and disposes files all over the place. The problem is particularly grievous with working copies. For example, when ordering a delete, SVN just disposes the file. When committing, it also disposes the copy in .svn/text-base. The same is done when updating any working copies containing this file. All this is done without any oppurtunity to shred the files in question.

Has anyone thought about this before? Suggestions? Maybe a candidate for a feature request?

Greets,
