I remember that exactly this proposal was done quite some time ago. I think
implementing it wouldn't be very hard: svn knows which paths it has put into
the file, it "just" needs to reread the list and commit every path that is
still in the list and if there's a path it doesn't know about svn would need
to ask whether to ignore those paths or to abort (with default to abort if
svn isn't connected to a TTY).

Maybe a nice task for the Summer Of Code ? I guess once the exact behaviour is
specified it would be a fairly easy task to do as I guess it doesn't involve
a lot of in-depth svn code and design knownledge.
