There are two choices about how to get the status of a folder - you either
get it by asking for the status of the folder itself, or you ask for the
status of the parent.

Both Stefan and I have independently come to the conclusion that the best
way for the TSVN shell status-fetching mechanism to work is normally to
fetch the status for a parent of a folder, rather than the folder itself.

The problem is that in *some* circumstances, observers using Filemon, etc,
can see lots of activity that they don't think was necessary (indeed, it
wasn't in that specific case). What they don't notice, of course, is all
the activity that *wasn't* there in all the other situations.

The difficulty with supplying status information to the shell is that it
doesn't ask about groups of files/folders, just a stream of individual
items, so there's not much scope for choosing the approach based on the query.

We have to build the systems which supply this status information to cope
with the most common and demanding typical sequences, rather than the outliers.
