   I think what you're talking about is a feature that I've been mulling
   over in my head for a while, trying to work out the best way to
   implement it.

   That is, add a "--replace" flag to "svn import", allowing you to
   blindly import stuff over the top of what already exists in the
   repository, without having to have a working copy. Kind of like
   moving the functionality of "svnloaddirs.pl" right into the svn
   client.

   It's relatively straightforward, but a non-trivial amount of work
   to implement (I'm sure someone more familiar with the commit editor
   would be able to whip it up in no time).
