My guess: BASE is what BASE is today. WORKING is how the working copy
ought to look given BASE plus the state changes recorded by the working copy
library. ACTUAL is how the working copy really looks.

   $ svn rm file.txt
   $ touch file.txt

BASE has file.txt. WORKING has not. ACTUAL has.

If I'm wrong, and if my guess is the same as Julian's, we might need some
clearer terms.
