My opinion is that you should know what you are doing. If you don't
know whether or not something exists before you overwrite it, or you
don't know what revision you want to copy from, then you should not be
using svnmucc.

If you do know what you are doing, then use

        svnmucc -m "${message}" \
                rm ${target} \
                mv ${source} ${target}

I think it's a bug that this sort of thing sometimes works even without
the "rm", depending on whether the target is a file or a directory.

I also think it's a misfeature that the svnmucc "mv", "put", "propset"
and "propdel" commands do not require a revision number to be specified;
I'd like them to fail if the target has been modified more recently than
a specified revision.
