I think that you are talking about different levels. I believe Bryan is asking
about a subdirectory of a repository being deleted and how that affects other
WC's. You are talking about a "top level directory" and how that invalidates
all working copies of that directory.

If a developer deletes a subdirectory, then everyone else will get that update
(i.e. the subdirectory will be deleted), the next time they do an update at a
level above the subdirectory that was deleted. Right???
