Sorry if I have been unclear; I don't expect Subversion to succeed here.
I'm aware that having write permission is a hard requirement when
putting stuff under Subversion's control.

However, I would like Subversion to handle this situation gracefully.
It should certainly not just wipe the admin directory on 'svn revert' as
in my first scenario, and it should definitely not wedge the working
copy as in the second scenario.

My naive approach to the problem is that Subversion could first check if
it *can* put the 'bad' directory under version control, and *then* add
it to the entries file...

Thanks,
