Attractive Model? Can Do Silly Things? That's the same as with C++,
The flaw IMO is that the svn up does not follow renaming. But you would
only want it if the root of your working copy moved. If only a subdir
moved, i.e. current location was deleted, you don't want svn to switch
your subdir to the new location.
There are issues with svn. But the model is simple and works quite well.
Just because the "svn up" command doesn't cope with renames, well, just
always use "svn switch $MY_SVN_URL_at_HEAD ."
