I would like to see this applied -- I'm not setup to build or test it,
but I am reasonably certain it would reduce the occurance of failures
related to rename/delete/move on Windows.

In the last few weeks I've received 2 personal emails and seen 2 on
the users list (which I only skim once in a while) that so far appear
to be due to people using the cygwin version or an alternate working
copy implementation (JavaSVN?).
