Sorry I can't follow.

When I checkout I've something like:

     entries : which contains <entry name="folder" type="dir"/>

Given this scenario and I delete "folder" by accidant, the .svn folder
from "project" still knows about "folder". And since
project/.svn/entries also contains url="http://subversion/repo/project/"
it can build the URL also.

Isn't this enoug information?
