Thanks so much for your quick response.

I'm not sure I understand what you're saying. :-( When would a file.svn-revert file be created for the "file" example below? On a merge? A regular commit following modifications? Does anything in the logs distinguish these files? And would I expect the file.svn-revert file to be there for the life of the working copy?

When a file is replaced by a different file, where that last file has an
history. In this case wc-1.0 needs one additional level of history.

svn rm file
svn cp other-file file
or svn cp URL_at_rev file

This feature was actually added in Subversion 1.4. Before that you would get
an error that you had to commit the delete before adding a new file with

(And in Subversion 1.7 this will be handled in a completely different way as
part of the WC-NG work)
