If someone does

  $ svn commit

that's the same as

  $ svn commit .

just like with CVS. Thus, it works the same as

  $ svn commit some/dir/way/down

that is, for each of the path argument(s), you start a particular
append spree with that argument, telescoping down and back up. If
there's another argument, do the same for that.

Am I missing the point here? (I didn't completely understand the
scenario you were describing, so I might be talking about the wrong
thing.)
