Currently there is no simple and fast way to restore a working copy to a prestine state. Often users have to choose between i) completely deleting the working copy for every build and then doing a fresh checkout from scratch or ii) living with lots of unversioned and ignored files and directories building up with each successive build.

Sorry, but to me this has got nothing to do with Subversion. Your CI
tool is should clean up itself.
Having said that, if someone wants to implement such feature I don't
think I would have anything against it. But I doubt it will (be implemented)
