That doesn't sound like the sort of advice I would want to give my
colleagues. And it sounds to me like the sort of situation that
justifies the "this isn't supported, don't do it" rule.

If I run Subversion in a supported configuration, I do NOT want to see
"hosed" working copies. If I do see one it will be classified as a
Subversion bug, of course. I should be able to use a source control
system, including its working directories, without having to worry
that my work may evaporate suddenly due to some glitch that is
perceived as "normal risk".

If you feel that this level of risk is acceptable to your environment,
that's your privilege, but it doesn't seem like good advice to give to
the list.
