I like this idea. 1.5 has lots and lots of big changes with UI
implications (merge tracking, depth, interactive resolution, etc); I
think we should take at least some of them slowly to avoid committing
to bad UI, and so I don't think we need to rush into "svn exclude" or
"svn viewspec" just yet (1.6...) However, adding an API that removes
a path and sets its entry in the parent to "absent" (or maybe just
sets the entry and lets the other code remove the files?) would be
useful to allow people to experiment with interfaces outside of the
core code.
