That's exactly the issue. Usually, no changes have been made on the
server. However, on one particularly-bad instance, one developer
committed a change to config.inc.php. Of course, every single working
copy had local changes in config.inc.php. While we'll never make that
mistake again, it would still be nice to be able to make changes to a
local working copy, and not have to worry about future conflict
markers showing up in one file if we do an SVN update on the entire
working copy. Perhaps this is an atypical use-case. But, we find
this to be a great use of SVN. Of course, this wouldn't be a problem
if the working copies weren't modified. However, the point of open-
source is that the end-user can modify the software. We just want an
option when updating a working copy to not update files with local
