This idea seems to fall down if you want to be able to cd into a
subdirectory of the working tree and do a subversion operation there.
(You could walk up the parents of the current directory looking for
the appropriate metadata, but that's pretty ugly and could have bad
behavior in some edge cases.) Sure, you could specify the
command-line tool such that the working directory root has to be
specified in an environment variable or on the command line, but I
think we want to stick fairly close to the CVS model of operation.
