Simple answer: not without setting up a new Subversion repository,
with a new URL and the revision excluded, and making all your clients
switch to it.

The functionality you're looking for is the "obliterate" function. It
is perhaps the oldest feature request for Subversion, and it has never
been successfully implemented.
