This isn't really related to this thread, and I don't expect (or need)
a reply, but please note that we've pretty much agreed to punt on
working-copy handling of obliterate. That is, it's okay to implement
just the repository-side part, and let people re-check-out working
copies or whatever.

The reason I say this is that there has been so much FUD and
misunderstanding about 'obliterate' on users@ and in the issue tracker
that I want to prevent any further perpetuation of the myth that
client-side issues are what's holding it up (for example, see
http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=516#desc71 and the
comments preceding it).
