Well... that's just awesome then... that's exactly what I'm looking for and
forward to in the 1.5 release (hopefully, praying)...!

And as far as comments made by Paul as to not assuming what the user
wants... I agree, that un-versioned files remain un-versioned (without
scheduled addition), and missing files remain as missing; this certainly
fits the requirements I have at work.

I'm not sure what Giovanni's use case is but if I had to worry about what
just got scheduled for addition and deletion within my working copy as a
result of a checkout, I would definitely find that to be a serious pain.
Although I don't want this to be a comment as to the validity of Giovanni's
