Before talking about command-line options (which imply API changes, by
the way), can we get some idea about how "svn cp --no-target-directory A
B" should be have when B already exists? If we start deleting the
target, which we've never done before, that's likely to make lots of
people angry when they mess up their repositories (because we don't have
a way to properly undo the mess).
