If a previously versioned directory is left behind unversioned, that
means there are unversioned (aka obstructing) nodes within the
directory, such as files created during a build. Those files could
not have been created by svn.
I hope that we will eventually extend tree conflict handling to the
point where it makes these kinds of situations trivial to resolve,
even for novice users. svn should interactively offer a set of
reasonable courses of action, such as removing the unversioned nodes,
or moving them to a special lost+found area, or something else that
allows incoming versioned nodes to be created in their place.
