This is impossible. To be able to do an update (in the sense of
revision control systems), svn must know on which version the
file is based (you need this information for each file: either
a revision or information saying that the file is unversioned),
and possibly information related to some properties.

The problem is: What if an update has partially failed, so that
some files have already been updated, but not others?
