Causing export to fail on nonexistant or unversioned targets.

r13151 made the export code stop walking the working copy area, and start
using the administrative information instead to do the export. With
that, we can no error out on targets that are either unversioned, or
don't exist (whereas we just silently skipped over them before). My
question to the community is should we do that? Right now, if you try
export a bogus directory (i.e., 'svn export /path/to/wc/bogus-dir'), it
simply comes back and says it was successful. I think it should return
an error ('bogus-dir' is unversioned or doesn't exist). I believe this
would be a change to the way the command line tool works, so I held back
making that change until we reached a consensus about whether or not it
was a 'bug' that needed to be fixed.

Thanks!
