This mighty help in some cases, but I don't like the idea of changing the
behaviour and having bug reports which say "TortoiseSVN recursively added
my whole hard disk but I only wanted to do add the top level directory".

That's why I prefer a warning when committing an unversioned directory. This
warning will not appear if the directory is already added: Maybe the user
is doing an in-place import. He either explicitly did not add the child
items when adding the directory or the child items were created after the
directory was added. But in this case those child items would be shown in
the commit dialog and checked by default - so no problem. Unless of course
the commit dialog had already been opened after the adding of the
Now it's getting complicated and the case is rather unlikely.

Since "svn obliterate" is not yet implemented in subversion it is rather
time consuming undoing such a commit with svnadmin tools. Having several
commits instead of one commit seems a better choice than having to undo
parts of a commit because too much was committed.
