Eric, my #1 goal for Subversion in 2008 is to rewrite the working copy
support to make the metadata far far far more robust.

Before I can do that, I need to get trunk (merge tracking) into a
finished enough shape that it makes sense to be making these sorts of
major new features.

In fact, most of the current developers are distracted by the
merge-tracking/1.5-release madness, which has a lot of work left to be
done.

Trust me, nobody likes the current working copy/metadata code. It's
the next Big Thing to fix. But we've gotta get there first.

And yes, I did type in your script, and ran it enough to determine
that "svn up wc" fixed your problem in this case.

And yes, I do care about tools deleting subdirectories. The only post
on my blog that has any significant number of comments (and still gets
linked from random places all the time) is
http://www.davidglasser.net/point/2006/07/30/using-omnigraffle-with-subversion-without-sadness/
which is about how to teach OmniGraffle to not clobber subdirectories.

And if you scroll down you'll even see the comment from the 3rd-party
tool author saying they added a feature to make avoiding this easier
:)
