Yes, like I said in my last mail, go look at tools/examples/
svnput.c. That's a sample program which unconditionally uploads a
file to the repository, possibly overwriting whatever's there. The
repository access (RA) API allows it, no problem.

That's fine practice if, say, you're a dumb DAV client doing a write
to an autoversioning repository. But it's a very bad practice if
you're trying to collaborate on a team. Changes need to be merged
together in working copies, not blindly overwritten in the server.
