Ah, but we do. :-)

We know what has to be done to support this model (and don't
misunderstand me -- I strongly believe Subversion should support it),
and we know the state of our working-copy management library. It's a sad
mess, and before we dare fiddle with it too much, we must sit down and
create a design for it -- something we don't really have.

So there it is. We can either add yet another hack, destabilising
libsvn_wc even further -- note that right now, there are way too many
corner cases it doesn't cover satisfactorily -- or wait for the
sobstantial reqrite that's on the way. Any help with the redesign would
be most helpful, of course.
