Because the developers want to delete the file from Subversion 
Repository  and have it removed from the working copy with the next 
(scripted update) , they do not have access to the working copy and the 
data in the working copy gets deployed ( also scripted)  to several 
servers, they do not want the deployment to contain the file they 
deleted from the repository.
