Yes, that's a good philosophical question. :-)

In theory, 'svn up' could start out by running 'svn cleanup'
internally... searching for any locks or logs, just like a journaling
filesystem does when you boot it up.

I think the reason we're not doing that (yet) is that we want to know
when a working copy gets into a cleanuppable state. In other words,
it helps developers find bugs, at a convenience cost to users. Maybe
we should change this policy at some point...
