And I was about to state that the policy is rather bogus :-) A file could
get deleted for any number of reasons. Specifically: what if I torched a
whole bunch of files/subdirs and wanted *just that one*.

And this seems weird:

$ svn up subdir
$ svn up file.c

Why should just the latter fail? Or do both fail?
