Wouldn't svn move/rename commands issued in the workspace be
unrecoverable without the original .svn directories? So if a developer
refactored some code and changed a few classnames/filenames, a 'svn co
--force' would require the developer to pick through the file tree and
re-issue svn add/mv/del commands on a per file basis.
