Ugh. Though, yes, it is consistent in a way.

That tells me "update everything in the current directory except FOO".
I think I would argue for:

     svn update --remove FOO

This is only confusing if you believe 'update' affects anything other
than your wc.

He's talking about the situation where the only way to remove a
directory entry from your wc is to 'svn update --depth 0' the parent
dir, then issue subsequent 'svn update' commands to restore the _rest_
of the parent. Basically this is what you have to do if you don't have
'svn update --remove' or whatever.
