There's no different between with and without --xml regarding info.
It treats "not a working copy" as an error instead of as a warning as
status does. I think there's still an old issue regarding our
inconsistency regarding this

We need to distinguish between the case where we emit a warning and continue
and the case were we bail. I think it makes sense to output well-formed
and valid XML in the former case. In the latter case it is going to be
more tricky since an error can happen anywhere.

A way to know if a directory is a working copy would be to just run
svn info on it, disregarding the output. If stderr is empty, you can be sure
it is a working copy.

Thanks,
