        hmm.. ok. I've worked with clearcase a bit and it makes an explicit
distinction between creating a file ("element" in clearcase-speak) and adding
it to a directory. Of course, if you commit the file, but revert the change
to the directory, you end up with an unlinked element in the repository.
(which then shows up in a special lost+found directory)
Is it possible for subversion to fail like that if adding (or moving) a file
is interrupted halfway through? If so, what happens to the file?
