Sure, I think the fact that this works is a bug. checkout and update
are conceptually different operations, no matter how our current
wc/client code works. A more structured working copy would treat them
rather differently. I don't see why we should go out of our way to
encourage people to use checkout as update, even if it happens to work
(and I'd be OK with making it be an error).

Is there any useful reason to use "svn checkout URL existing-wc"?
