I will go ballistic if we disallow this. I absolutely need multi-WC
operations in Subclipse. One of SVN's number one features is atomic
operations, so imagine how pissed users are when their commits from
Eclipse span multiple transactions. I at least need this for all
write operations (commit, copy, move).

I currently hack around this limitation at run time by creating a .svn
folder in the parent, but I would like to see it just work in
Subversion core API. The new support in copy/move for multiple
sources has the same problem except the hack does not work.
