This is actually kind of dangerous - if there had been changes to the
repository between the time of the original checkout/last update and
when you are checking out the HEAD revision, those changes will
effectively be lost without your knowledge.

This is really impossible - if the .svn directory is removed, there is
no way to know what the revisions of the original files were.
