It's not an error to check out over an existing working dir, at least
if you use the same URL for it. (I don't know what currently happens
if you use a different URL.) It just devolves into "svn update". So
what you're really looking for is better error messages when someone
invalidates a working copy by replacing the repository it points to.
That could actually be done with uuid checking, and I think it
warrants a low-priority issue in the issue DB if you want to file it.
