 He's saying all the data under .svn can be recreated from the

this is as true as unimportant. i could have changed anything or
thrown away anything. the repository does not know.

but the .svn can be recreated. and the wc can be fixed by merging in
the changes if something is there, or by just recreating the
files/folders.

that's what a svn up is for.

otherwise we should rename it to svn check, or svn integrity.
