Re: svn copy driving me nuts - how to overwrite URLs in a vendor tree?

It would be nice to have this common requirement met by the subversion
client (saving each and every developer needing to have appropriate
shells and scripting languages as add-ons for common operations - even
when developers may not be all on the same platform).

svn cp --overwrite-existing --add-new --remove-missing

These flags should allow all the combinations needed to drop new
vendor code and have changes versioned (obviously it won't pick up
moves within the vendor tree that's obviously asking for an absurd
degree of content interpretation).

I can't think of a good reason why all four combinations of local and
repository locations couldn't be supported though several are less
useful than local->local and local->repository.

I assume that many people find themselves diving for scripts for
exactly this situation on a semi-regular basis.

Comments?
