[wishlist] option to ignore access failures

Imagine, you are in a pure unversioned directory where some are checkout
directories are inside. You can enter this directory, type "svn up *"
and it will work since the shell expands * to the list of directories.
Now try the same when some other unversioned files/directories are in
the same directories. SVN will stop immediately with an error message

# svn ls *
svn: Entry has no URL
svn: 'asdf' has no URL

# same with svn up, etc.

But what is the point? It could simply ignore unversioned files (or
throw a non-fatal error message) and continue with directories that are
under subversion control.
