Yeah, if you read the commentary in the issue, I think this problem
can mainly be solved by changing the way libsvn_wc constructs a
working copy.

In my own mind, I imagine the solution to this problem is not that
'svn co' is really restartable, but rather, than 'svn up' can finish
an interrupted checkout by noticing missing things.

As the RA layer drives the update/checkout editor, it's a depth-first
drive. That depth-firstness is what makes us so fragile at the
moment. If the update-editor changed the way it built working copies,
then 'svn up' would have enough information to know that a directory
is "incomplete", and know how to finish retrieving things.
