Ok, I see. It would be nice for users to get a little more info than
"cannot non-recursively commit a directory deletion". Couldn't TSVN just
refuse to let the user press the OK button or a hint in the commit
dialog in this case? There must be other users that don't have a clue
what this error message means.
