True, these options exist. The effect of automatically checking the unversioned resources is often a surprise, and sometimes a bother IMHO.
Take into consideration:
A) The command line behaves differently (ignores unversioned resources)
B) The Eclipse CVS client specifically asks the user in a separate dialog.
C) TortoiseSVN has an option to show unversioned resources, and keeps these unchecked by default (IIRC).
D) I can see that people are falling into this trap regularly (at least my colleagues are, even the smarter ones)
I think the Principle of Least Surprise would instruct us to warn the user, and ask, perhaps with an option to turn the warning off.
