Wow, Jeff, nice analysis!

And now, here's the news: we're in process of freezing code for an svn
1.1 release. In svn 1.1, 'svn up' no longer stops dead in its tracks
when it tries to remove a directory that contains unversioned stuff. It
just leaves the unversioned stuff behind, and keeps going. This should,
for all practical purposes, solve all the pain you've been
experiencing. My recommendation, in fact, is that you checkout a copy
of svn's /trunk code and try it out today.
