Did just that for the time being.

However I think this might be properly implemented by:
-copy to a temporary resource
-check wether the temporary resource is version-controlled
-move the temporary resource back overriding the original resource

The open question is what happen to the version history. I tend to 
having a global configuration whether to keep histories of deleted 
resources or remove them (as keeping histories of deleted resources 
might bloat the repository a lot).
