I understand. But it still freaks me out a little. I'm used to saying "The only way you can lose local changes in SVN is by invoking the Revert command.", and I really wish for this to continue to be true. (Ok, updates in general can mess up your changes, but in a way that is (relatively) recoverable.)
In my view, any (implicit) removal of local changes without asking is a really bad thing. It should not be scary to use SVN.
