New issue 99 by pdftex: sparse directories can be de-telescoped

The last para of svn.advanced.sparsedirs.html says this:
"First, you cannot de-telescope a working copy item. Running svn update  
--set-depth empty in an infinite-depth working copy will not have the  
effect of discarding everything but the topmost directory—it will simply  
error out."
This might have been true for 1.5, but I've got no problems de-telescoping  
in 1.6 - so this sentence should be removed.
