However, if the error message were at least more specific to this
situation, that would be helpful. For example, when rm'ing a normal
versioned file with local mods, you would get the error Justin got:

   % svn rm my-file
   svn_error: #21114 : <Attempting restricted operation for modified resource>
     Use --force to override this restriction
   svn_error: #21114 : <Attempting restricted operation for modified resource>
     'my-file' has local modifications

But when removing an added file, you'd get a different error

   % svn rm my-file
   svn_error: #21XXX : <blah blah blah>
     `my-file' is scheduled for addition; to remove it, use
     `svn revert' to unschedule

   svn_error: #21XXX : <blah blah blah>
     'my-file' is scheduled for addition

That way Subversion say what it really means.
