I don't think there has ever been a strict definition of 'wedged', but my
sense (which might be inaccurate) of how it is usually used in the
Subversion world does not agree with the above.

I think 'wedged' is more often used to indicate the state when the databases
and logs are fully consistent, but either a stale lock in the db
environment, or a permissions problem, is blocking access to them.
