I use checkout -N all the time, especially in a directory of branches,
where I only need to manipulate the last 2 or 3 versions (and I do have
cases where I need atomic commits across branches, e.g. for changing
branch metadata). Using "svn update" to fill in missing branches works
well and seems natural. What I'm missing is a way to remove branches I
don't need anymore-- I have to wipe out the tree and start over again.
I like Greg's "svn release" proposal.

I'm glad you are acknowledging that this is just a stepping stone--
bring on the arbitrary repo-to-wc mapping please.

--Regards, John
