So really, you'd prefer that --force never be added to any subcommand
which doesn't already support it right? On a scale of 1 [don't care] to
10 [vehemently opposed, will do all in your power to thwart :-)] how
strongly do you feel about this patch using --force? I have no great
argument in favor of --force other than it seems appropriate for what I'm
doing here and is available. Long story short, if you really feel
strongly about it I'll add a new option. --allow-obstructions maybe?

No luck with the spoon, song, or poem, but I did learn 2 new things.
First, cycling up Crawford and Pinkham notches makes one think fondly of
internal combustion. Second, when deep in the woods, even small bears who
immediately run *away* from you, are still quite scary when they burst
unexpectedly from the underbrush.

Here is a new patch, mostly it's just catching up with the latest activity
on trunk (r20569). There is a small tweak to the checkout_test.py in test
#8 import_and_checkout that fixes a failure when running the tests via
Let me know if you had any other suggestions or any outstanding comments
on my previous update http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2006-06/0951.shtml.
Support --force option with svn checkout, update, and switch.
With the force option, co, sw, and up now tolerate unversioned
obstructing paths when adding new paths of the same type, rather than
generating a SVN_ERR_WC_OBSTRUCTED_UPDATE error.
If the obstructing path is the same type (file or directory) as the
corresponding path in the repository it will be left 'as-is' in the
working copy. For directories this simply means the obstruction is
tolerated. For files, any content differences between the obstruction
and the repository are treated like a local modification to the
