No problem. Take your time.

I know. As I said, it is only idea proposal. Copy working file in
svn_wc_add_repos_file() would be simple fix.

1. svn_wc_add2() assumes that working and base file already exists at
place. It is possibly because svn_wc_add2() have designed for
implement svn add command.
2. svn_wc_add2() works with directories, it is really hard to
implement loggy for directories recursively.
3. In svn_wc_add_repos_file() we already have done replacements logic.
I didn't see reasons to duplicate it.
