It's possible to do this, by overloading 'svn cleanup --force' to do
the additional work of the upgrade... I guess the question is now how
the others feel about this. Should the error happen when someone wants
to store a depth or when someone executes a write-operation on the
working copy? (Or even when accessing a working copy for read-only
operations?)

Which would be your preference?

Erik.
