Hi Daniel,

I don't mean to sound too harsh, it's just a pet peeve, and I really
like what SVN can already do.

Anyway, loading a file by using "svn import" with a --replace variant
would have its benefits too.
But, I just want to say:
svn commit -m "I don't care there was a change, just use this one
instead." --force thisfile.bin

In your oppinion, is this difficult to implement?
