svn patch and missing targets

From: Neels Hofmeyr <neels_at_elego.de>

I've just used 'svn patch'. There were missing target files, but I only
noticed a lot later; because all the text conflicts had .svnpatch.rej
files, but the missing targets were only listed in 'svn patch' output.

So in my particular case it would have helped to have .svnpatch.rej
files for missing targets. I would have noticed the lack of a target
and I could have immediately looked at the diff chunks without
having to browse through the original patch file. Does that
generally make sense? It would sometimes need to create parent folders
to place a rej file...
