Pre-1.7 working copies are a big mess, so 'svn cleanup' actually makes sense.

Seriously, though, the upgrade from 1.6 to 1.7 will need to be explicit, due to
the large amount of data moving, spanning potentially large directory
hierarchies. Using 'cleanup' make sense, since part of the upgrade will be to
run any existing logs, then migrate the data to the new format.

Correct. We're still debating it, but I think in order to do *anything*, read
or write, with a 1.7 client, you'll need to upgrade. No sitting on the fence
this time. :)
