My comment - YES PLEASE! Very nice idea having the different flags, in
my particular case at the moment, I'd use:
 svn cp --overwrite-existing --add-new
as I'm only adding a subset to a superset and want to leave everything in place.

But in going from v1.61 to v1.62 of my core XAMPP fileset, I'd want to
use the --remove-missing as well.
