Ah, I understand your point. There's a problem with consistency here,
your example is very good.

The question is: is the inconsistency an annoying problem, or is it an
extra bit of user-friendliness? I can see somebody arguing either way.

However, hundreds (thousands?) of people have been using Subversion for
2 years or so now, and this is the first time I've ever heard anyone
complain about this inconsistency. So based on experience, I'm
*guessing* that the status quo is the better choice.
