Assume?!?! Nah. You are missing the the fact that it will be possible
for each directory to come from a URL that is not logical to the one it
is in, or the ones that it contains. Take this example:

# svn co http://svn.apache.org/repo/apache/trunk apache
# cd apache/srclib
# svn co http://svn.apache.org/repo/apr/trunk apr
# svn co http://svn.apache.org/repo/apr-util/trunk apr-util

This pretty common. I do it from the current apache/apr CVS now. If
somewhere in the srclib/apr/apr-util directories I delete the .svn/
directory, there's no easy way to determine if it needs to base itself
off of the parent, or the child.

We can assume *nothing*. The user will have to suck it down,
re-checkout, and remember not to do that again.
