"How about just 'delete the spurious unversioned files yourself'?"

As I said in the previous reply, two of those files are user settings. They would have to be constantly recreated by the developer. That increases costs. One of the reasons I wanted some form of source code control was to reduce costs.

"Svn can't decide which of your files that it can't recreate for you should disappear."

It could ignore files that it is instructed to ignore. That would help.

How about just 'delete the spurious unversioned files yourself'? The
problem is the versioned directory containing them that is not supposed to exist after the switch. And the only way svn can fix it for you is if you clean it up. Svn can't decide which of your files
that it can't recreate for you should disappear. Getting that wrong
would be much worse than presenting a conflict on the directory holding them.
