I thought that the whole API of Subversion is available from the SWIG
binding? Oh well...

That's what I meant: Maybe it would be simple for the Subversion
developers to change the update command.

I guess you already tried --non-recursive and pass all files and
directories?

Another idea (which probably isn't much faster but who knows) would be
to move the conflicting files away, do the update and then move the
files back. *shudder*
