Hmm, I should  have said "not really tested".
I guess the first version will have to do then. 

If people want to apply VC operations on non VC controlled directories
it's too bad, they get an error.
Unless someone else wants to work on giving a nicer error in that

want to adopt it and get it checked in, go right ahead.
