add dir, add file, commit file?

What is our expected behaviour if a user types:

$ mkdir foo
$ svn add foo
$ echo "Hello" > foo/bar
$ svn add foo/bar
$ svn ci foo/bar

In cvs this would be no problem, since the dir would be created in the
repository at add time, but with svn, we are trying to add a file to a
directory that is not under version control yet. Should we assume that
we also commit the directory in this case, or should we barf?
