That's not true. Consider:

   $ svn up
   G foo.txt <-- oh no, repos changes merged into modified local copy
   $ svn diff foo.txt > my-adjusted-changes.txt
   $ svn up -r<EARLIER_REV> foo.txt
   G foo.txt

The local changes to foo.txt should be preserved. Even if I'm wrong
about that (I haven't bothered to test it), she could still do the
following at this point:

   $ patch foo.txt < my-adjusted-changes.txt

So it's not hard to get back to the original modified state, if she
really needs to.
