I guess what worries me is that 'svn info foo.c' and 'svn info URL'
might show different fields to describe a lock. In my idealistic
world, 'svn info' would always print the entire svn_lock_t. But that
would mean caching extra -- essentially useless -- information in
.svn/entries, such as the expiration_date and absolute_fs_path.

So which is better or worse? Does it matter that 'svn info' always
show the same svn_lock_t fields, regardless of local vs. remote
operation?
