I knew this would lead to confusion. I'm going to fix this; it's at
all obvious (nor is it documented *anywhere*) that you're supposed to
restart a checkout with 'svn up'.

If I can manage to commit my "checkout calls update under-the-hood"
change, then things will work perfectly. If a runs 'svn co' on an
interrupted checkout, it *will* run 'svn up' under the hood
automatically. At the moment, I believe running 'svn co' a 2nd time
simply starts over from the beginning, overwriting the working copy.
