Reading that issue I understand that removing directories will be implemented
later? Am I right?

I think it's logical. I should be able to undo all of my changes to working
copy done by other svn commands with a sequence of "svn revert" commands. If
I added a file manually and then did "svn add", then "svn revert" should keep
it. If I created a dir with "svn mv" then I find it reasonable for "svn
revert" to remove the copy, provided I have not modified anything there.
