Still not quite right.

I think the logic should be
checkout with spec'd revision.
if fails due to local locks, do the svn cleanup
if fails due to don't have spec'd revision or some network problem, 
if fails for some other reason, do the clobber.
if it still fails, bail out.

How does this look? Any objections to using the svn python bindings instead of 
a shell command?
