Ok. I think you are saying this should all be loggy operations, right?
Do you consider it a task of wc-replacements to get this right, or is
that a separate issue to you? (which would -of course- include fixing
the other ones too)

BTW: which part of the 'remove copyfrom-url and copyfrom-rev' do you
consider non-atomic? Modifying an entry is done with 1 call into

Ivan, note that we also need to copy the text-revert and optional
prop-revert files over the text-base and prop-base files. That's
something which I think does belong in svn_wc_delete2().
