The problem with the hack in svn is that you can accidentally do
update src.  svn is trying to solve this with some complicated depth

In svk we do this a bit different to simplify things.  Missing entries
(! when you do svk st) are treated as local changes and aren't brought
back when you do svn up.  Instead, you can do revert -R to bring them
back, just like with other local changes made.
