And as a PS; I suspect something like that may be essential when file
locking is introduced. Reading the locking_plan.txt, it appears that
the client gets a unique token with which the file is locked. Assuming
that this token is stored in the .svn directory in the wc, then
carelessly deleting the wc could leave the file locked permanently.
Obviously there will be a svnadmin rmlock command, but you'd want to
try and prevent users shooting their foot off as much as possible.
