If the consistency of .svn as a whole is in doubt, then we cannot even
determine which revision(s) to obtain. I was thinking about the case where
somehow the text-base had become corrupt, but the metadata was still correct.

If .svn is not to be trusted, then it's probably most expedient to

find baddir -name .svn | xargs rm -rf
tar czvf /tmp/working-files.tgz baddir
svn co the appropriate revision
tar xzvf /tmp/working-files.tgz
