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

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
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
