This seems to be called "obliterate" in subversion and is one of the "most wanted" features in the roadmap  but is currently slated for "2.0?" A web search for "subversion obliterate" will help you find the gory details.
I believe that the only way you can currently remove items is through careful use of svn dump / filter / load with the sides effect of probably requiring all users to check out new working copies.
For your uses, perhaps you could spin this artifact off into it's own repository (use "external"s from your main repo if required) and then you can archive that repo off whenever necessary?
