Unison: delete a file but don't delete a file

Unison keeps filesystems synchronized across machines... If you are still manually using rsync, you might want to take a look. Now... question. I'm running low on space on one of those machines synchronized. Now what I'd like to do is to remove a file in such a way that it is not removed from other replicas. In fact, I'd like to be asked to copy the file back on next synchronization (same situation as if the file never existed in the first place). Any ideas how to do that?
