It does the same thing as 'svnadmin recover', but on the client side.
It executes any leftover journals lying around in .svn/ areas, then
removes .svn/ lockfiles.

'svn cleanup' is not the proper response to any random client error. In
fact, it's *only* useful for errors that say "working copy is locked,
run cleanup." :-) This happens when a client operation is interrupted
in the middle of journal creation or execution. It returns the working
copy to a consistent state.
