Out of curiosity, what's the purpose of that?

I've done something sligthly similar, in order to clean up a working
copy to make it look like it did when I checked it out. Sort of like
'make clean', only using SVN to tell me what's source code and what's
compiler output.

Specifically, it removes files that are svn:ignore'd as opposed to
files that are not versioned. Thus it keeps any files and
modifications you've added to the WC yourself.

(Python script attached.)
