Updates should never be in a dishonest state, though. If a directory
doesn't get fully updated, it's revision still reflects what it had
before the update (which was known to be complete and accurate)...

But doesn't an interrupted update leave the WC in a dishonest state
too? The WC claims to match its former revision, but it's partway
through the update, and so its claim is a lie.

Also, what's the state of affairs if update is interrupted while
creating a new directory? What does that new directory's entries file
look like? Whatever it looks like, couldn't you just drop that in at
the top of a new checkout and then have checkout proceed as if it was
the resumption of an interrupted update?
