That's equivalent to tossing libsvn_wc/update_editor.c. That is, it
means coming up with a completely new breadth-first system for
checkouts, one which doesn't involve using an editor at all. I don't
think any of us were comfortable with that idea. At least for us,
that would be a last-ditch strategy of desperation. :-)

What is -N? What does that mean, depth 0? Depth 1?

I've made my opinion known before: I think we should banish the -N
switch, because at the moment it's a) ambiguous, b) half-implemented
for many commands, and c) inconsistent across commands.

I'm very much looking forward to cmpilato's push to create a --depth
argument as a replacement.
