Cleanup is a Subversion API, from the command line it is svn cleanup.
It just does a few very specific things, it is not a general purpose
tool to fix a working copy. It is probably not as easy as it sound to
write such a tool either. It would certainly be nice if Subversion
did provide us with more tools to get out of these problems, but they
don't currently and probably never will if someone does not step up to
contribute at least a design for what it should do.
