Hmmm... perhaps there should be a command or option that forces an update of
the text-base from the repository. After all, your example alters the
text-base by hand intentionally, but someone could do that accidentally; for
example, using a wildcard that affects more files than intended.

'svn restore' or somesuch. Thoughts?
