What are you talking about? Why cant TSVN do whatever it wishes?

Why can't TSVN *ask* whether the user wants to replace the directory,
or create a new directory within the existing one -- just like the
explorer does? If the user chooses the former behavior, then TSVN can
'svn rm' the existing dir and the 'svn cp' a dir into that location.
So you'll end up with a schedule-replace dir.

I don't understand why this requires any svn API changes at all.
