I'm aware of that. Usually the left over files cause no problems, but
I can think of some (crappy) build system that just compiles
everything that you throw at it in which case renamed files would
cause conflicts during compilation.

I've tried a few packages and I had no problems so far. For me the
possibility to do incremental builds outweighs the possible problems.
Fortunately I don't use many packages that still use SVN.
