'incomplete' != 'aborted'. Not at all! It means that the directory
isn't 100% confident that it has a correct/complete list of entries.

And the only thing that makes use of this flag is 'svn update'. When
libsvn_wc begins an update-report and sees the flag, it says, "ok,
time to resort to the cvs style of reporting: iterate all entries to
the server, rather than just throwing out a directory revnum."

For example... this is how we do checkouts now: we create a root
directory with a single entry for '.', mark it 'incomplete', and run
'svn update'. Has nothing to do with abortions or failures.
