In theory, not that I've tried it recently, and with no guarantee of
success, reliability, or data integrity, you could:
        rename the dir to dir.oops
        svn co -N svn://server/repos/blah/blah/dir
        move dir.oops/* dir/.
        run 'svn status' to see if it really worked. Maybe followed by
an 'svn update'
