Bob, thanks for this (I also work with Dan on this problem). As for 1, --
we could do something like copy out the .svn directory before the recreation
event, and then copy it back in after. I think that other than something
like that, basically we can't (and don't want to) generate D in a
non-desctructive way.

As for 2 -- wouldn't the copy have to be on a file-by-file basis, as opposed
to a directory-tree copy?
