Sorry, I missed that. I'm less opposed if it is an option to checkout,
but I remain concerned about the amount of code involved in the proposed
rsync-like functionality.

But a checkout option to adopt existing files as the modified wc copy
seems reasonable, if it turns out not to be too complicated.

I think it would be reasonable for checkout to adopt exising directories
by default--no option required. That should be good enough for Eclipse,
since conflicting *files* is actually an error condition in the use case
you described.
