Mark (or anyone), do you recognize the use case described by Clemens
Anhuth in <http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=3028>?

  Use case (2) - Eclipse folder, from issue #3028

  "For example we have a complete Eclipse instance in our svn
  repository and we want to ignore every change in its directory
  and below. Because Eclipse more or less at random creates and
  deletes file from its own directory we have no way of knowing
  which individual files may be change or deleted by starting
  Eclipse. To avoid that an update creates files again that were
  deleted by running Eclipse the ignore setting I am asking for
  should also apply to updates. [...]"

Is this use case important? Can such a case be adequately handled in
practice by what we've been discussing, despite what Clemens claims
about the need for recursive effect and avoiding the re-creation of
deleted files?
