Atomic updates

This question was already discussed in this list but I'm raising it up
again and bothering you once more. :-)

What are the chances of atomic updates (on the client side, of course)
to be implemented in Subversion? If none, why?

I think it's very useful for at least two reasons. First, Suppose you
are updating your working copy and the local network dies in the
middle of the operation. Only half of the files were updated and now
the build is broken. Your manager comes in and says "network is down
and it will come back up again within 3 hours". Your hands are now
tied, unless you stop to do a temporary fix to the broken files.
Second, it would prevent automated continuos integration tools from
braking the build in the case of a partially updated working copy.

With the best regards,
