You said detach was optional before, but that is OK.  The conversation has
basically come back to the point I made in the original email.

Nothing has changed about in-place import.  That just happens to be the
tecnhique you used for your working copy.  Your real issue is that you can
no longer simply detach a working copy in 1.7.  That has been discussed on
this list before.  You are correct, you can't.  For now, there is a Python
script that can be used to do this.  Perhaps in a future release there will
be a formal subcommand.

Finally, keep in mind that I could have begun my recipe like this:

$ svn co --depth-empty url://server/repos/parent
$ mkdir child
$ svn add child

This would still mean the parent folder is the root of the WC, but it is at
least an empty parent folder if you are trying to avoid having other content
in the WC.
