Please could you give a short description (in the log message and/or in the "--help" text) of what the "--force" option means or does. I am asking because issue 1296 says "nice to have a --overwrite or --force option to tell 'svn export' to just overwrite any files that already exist", but I can't see anything in this patch that overwrites files.

Also, your original message said that your problem was that "svn co bogus-url" created the destination directory before failing because of the bad URL, and the existence of that directory caused a second attempt (with the correct URL) to fail. That use case could be better fixed by changing "svn co" to not leave a dangling directory when it fails in that way.
