I'm with Hari on this one. Daily / official builds should start with a
pristine copy of the module that is about to be compiled, ensuring that
there are no local files and/or modifications.

Yes one could start with a `svn status` to see if there are any local
files or modifications, but then there is svn:ignore.
One could then use `svn st --no-ignore`. What other things might bite?

It does bring up an interesting question: If the output of
`svn st --no-ignore`
   after an
`svn update`
is completely empty, is it then guaranteed in all cases that "." will
equal what one gets with a fresh checkout, so that

`diff -r . ../newcheckout`

is empty?

Are there other things that could be overlooked? E.g. keyword expansion
differences?

What is *the method* of getting a pristine checkout from a possibly
dirty working copy?
