(I'd warn() here instead of print().)

This won't work to add files recursively in directories you've just added.
Ditto for the deleted files -- you may leave empty directories in
your repository -- or directories that only contain files that are
ignored by svn status.

In fact if you want to add all files you have to recurse into
subdirs. If you want to do this cleanly you may want to check their
names against a possible svn:ignore property set on the first parent
dir under version control.

Another tool that may be useful is a tool that takes a diff as
input, applies it with patch(1), and performs the relevant
svn add/svn rm commands that are needed to prepare a commit.
(This tool will need to predict the files and directories that will
be added and removed by patch(1).)
