Hi Jean-Marc,

In daily practice using Tortoise SVN as Explorer-Plugin, the local
folder name and the name in repository is the same. This is since when
you checkin the folders or checkout the folders, the existing folder
names are identical to the local/respository folder name. So, even if
SVN allows in theory using different folder and file names locally and
in repository, in practice it is identical. That's why I'd like to
request a more easy way for syncing local file system with repository
content. (For sure, SVN won't have got a history to these files, but
this is not really required in this case.)

BTW: This request not only applies for stupid copy&paste actions in
windows explorer; also if you're using some tools for working special
things in the folder structure e.g. every night, they typically don't
know anything of SVN, they just copy folders and files and do their
job. But at the end, I'd like those changes to be integrated into my
SVN repository again.
