svn update needs to *restore* missing items. That is part of its
normal operation. So it needs to locate the problem and repopulate
ACTUAL.

It doesn't need to scan the working copy to generate the report to the
server (this was the specific result from IRC). It can look at
WORKING, and send that to the server. When the response comes back,
then it can start fetching new content, bumping revisions, and
rebuilding missing files/dirs.
