I don't think it's subversion's cross to bear. I'd rather see the users of
such flawed file systems realize those flaws.

This is not a good default behavior. IMO subversion should not go out of its
way to make provisions for the failures of a file system. But if it does
anything to help solve this problem (read: "somebody else's problem), it
shouldn't be a default behavior.
