 Oh god, an unbreak-my-app option? Havoc Pennington has a nice
 rant about the scourge of free software: papering over problems

 include it.
 
 This is a problem. I don't want to see problems addressed in
 conditional code only executed if the myriad unbreak-my-app
 options are flipped on. Unfortunately, i seem to be in the
 minority. It shouldn't surprise me. We've been losing control
 over our home directories for years now.

Personally I would like to see to oposite of what Karl is proposing:
a flag to restore .subversion. IMO, if .subversion is present, don't
muck with it unless the flag is present.
