I'm a little confused by the question... it's not only possible, I'm not sure how to disable
that behavior. So, if you've removed a file from the repository, and you have a working copy
that was checked out before that deletion, then a simple "svn update" in that working copy
should delete that file from the working copy. Is that not what's happening? If so, was the
file in the working copy modified? Subversion won't delete modified files since that might
mean deleting work that didn't exist anywhere else.
