FEATURE: Something like a 'svn rebuild'

Ryan Schmidt from the users list helped me track down the problem which
apparently was that, somehow the pristine version of my local copy was
updated, but not the repository. I'm not sure what caused this perhaps it
was my then shaky net connection.

His recommendation to me was to checkout a fresh copy and manually merge in
the changes. Fortunately, this is not a big deal since there were only a
couple of small files our of sync.

So, my feature recommendation would be something like a 'svn rebuild'
command that would re-download and recreate all the .svn dirs and files
inside of the working copy *without* modifying anything outside of the .svn
(i.e. any local changes).

The resulting rebuild would look as if someone checked out a fresh copy and
manually made the changes. Files on the repo that are missing from the
working copy would be marked as missing, and files on the working copy which
are missing from the repo would be marked as unversioned.

What do you think?
