SQL Server: How to simulate DROP TRIGGER IF EXISTS

I usually store triggers, store procedures, functions, queries etc in sql files in an SVN repository. I then use a simple app I wrote, that just opens each file and executes it. The problem of course is CREATE and ALTER. I can’t use CREATE because the same trigger might already be there. On the other hand I couldn’t use ALTER because some triggers might be new.

I came across the following weird behavior in an ISABOUT query in SQL SERVER, that involves the weight keyword and the final rank of the results. I want to describe this behavior here, just in case someone has a good explanation for it!
