There is a way... we can discuss them on a case by case basis and remove them from SVN :) Unfortunately it's not a high priority compared to finishing the game, adding new features and art, etc. Though we've made a lot of progress on removing clutter in recent months.

If you mean automatically detecting unused files when packaging the game, I think that's asking for trouble, because you never know how and when a script will load an asset, imagine a fragment of code like:

var asset = "path\to\asset\" + playerciv + "_some_asset";

and there's really no way to analyze the codebase and know whether it intends to load something or not.
