Currently, svn has the annoying behavior of restoring files i have
deleted from the .subversion configuration directory. See how
annoying it is:

0 .subversion% svn st
? README
M servers
0 .subversion% rm README
0 .subversion% ls README
ls: README: No such file or directory
1 .subversion% svn st
? README
M servers

Grrrrr.

Well, tough. What are you removing that file for? Does it bother you so
much?

* subversion/libsvn_subr/config_file.c:

  (svn_config_ensure): When the .subversion directory does not exist,
  attempt to create it and the default files. Do not attempt to
  create the default files when the directory already exists.

This seems like a very, very fragile way to go. *If* it turns out that
we really need this feature -- something I'm not sure about -- then it's
be much better to test for ~/.subversion/README, just like we test for
.svn/README in the WC. That would at least give us a measure of
confidence that Subversion created the config directory, not someone else.
