No, I think this is a different bug. #681 is about the *scheduling*
behavior of 'svn rm'. [That is, should the scheduling of a removal
make the directory vanish? If so, then 'svn revert' can't recover it,
unless we stash it in .svn/ somewhere.]

But this bug is about post-commit cleanup behavior. If a directory
was deleted in a commit, we had this nice function which blew away the
directory in the working copy afterwards. And it had a nice feature
of preserving wee little paths down to any local mods in the
directory. I wonder what happened to that code path?
