Checkout --force

Does anyone have any interest in adding the --force flag for svn
checkout? As with svn export, this flag would allow Subversion to
overwrite existing local files and directories with the same name.

For example, I have a directory with a third-party application (binary
executables, libraries, templates, etc.) that I would like to use as
my working copy. I don't want to check in the entire third-party
application because of its size and license restrictions. The files
from Subversion would include additional files that need to live in
certain subdirectories beneath the main application directory, and
some of my files may even replace files installed with the
application. Is there a way to do this kind of thing using
svn as is (without writing scripts around it to do this for me)?
