For most people this is probably not pertinent as you don't want to be deleting any of your hidden system files. I had an issue the other day were I needed to delete some svn information off of my computer before being able to check it in.
I had copied a bunch of files from one subversion location to a new one using finder and caused a bunch of issues with the new subversion site.
In order to delete out the old subversion data, you need to enable the viewing of the hidden files, then delete all the .svn directories, then check everything in.
To view hidden files, open up terminal editor and type in this:
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE killall Finder
To hide all the hidden files after you are done:
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE killall Finder
