Well a lot! It doesn't reflect the explicit commands i proposed for
fetching/purging but there are nice ideas there yes. What i would dislike
is specifying an option explicitly on each command. A single option for
checkout would do enough; or checking out by default without a pristine
working copy. SVN could then report that pieces that are to be worked on
offline need to be processed first with an `svn offline' or the like; the
freshly checked out tree could also then be marked read-only and be
unlocked by the `svn offline' command to prevent accidental modification.

With regards,
Reinoud
