No. Never mind me. Duh.

Of course we can't `svn rm --force' a directory. Until `svn revert'
can recover from such a maneuver, I think we intentionally disallow
it. However, I think the proper thing to do would be to just silently
ignore the --force for dirs, and have `svn help rm' note that --force
is ignored for directories at this time.
