I haven't looked at the code, but it's quite possible that something
like svn_client_diff only needs to sort each hash once, in which case
it doesn't need to be cached and O(N log N) might be acceptable.
Repository diffs like "diff -rN" and "diff -rN:M" are more of a
problem as they rely on unsorted data from svn_repos_dir_delta.

It's possible that svn_client_status could be sorted much like
svn_client_diff, and that "st -u" would have the same repository
problem as "diff -rN".
