The patch is being applied to your locally-modified working copy, so
any "failed hunks" will be changes that the server is trying to merge
in. I'll clarify this.

It's not necessarily up-to-date; somebody might always have committed,
so only 'svn up' can guarantee that. :-) But all the local mods are
gone. Your local copy is exactly equal to the revision you last
updated to.

The server treats *all* files as pure binary data. Storage is diffy,
but it's a binary diffing algorithm. Not sure what you're asking?
