Konstantin,

Note that it will recursively delete all *empty* directories under
ebin, after deleting all .beam and .[xy]rl files.  So will only remove
.svn/tmp if its empty.  A little heavy-handed.  But you might be able
to put a dummy file in there if its a problem, or patch
(rebar_erlc_compiler:clean) for your needs.
