feature request: improving svn cleanup

I managed to mess up one of my projects such that subversion won't do
anything useful with my WC.
For example, cleanup gives me:

/cleanup C:/Work/Data_Files/Eclipse3.1/BuildAndDocTools
    svn: Error processing command 'modify-entry' in
svn: Error modifying entry for 'buildFiles'
svn: 'buildFiles' is not under version control/

Note: these are messages from subclipse, but I got the same kind of
problem with TortoiseSVN, and in both cases, they're both calling down
to the svn-client API.

In this case the "modify-entry" was a delete.

I eventually managed to fix it by modifying .svn/log by hand, but it
would be nice if svn-cleanup also checked for "modify-entry" data that
references files or directories that do not exist, and then removed
those entries.

Thanks, Noel.
