Because I've been using svn to track my svn configuration. This
necessitated having multiple working copies in different locations. I
know I can copy all the changes into a non disjoint working copy and
commit from there. I was just curious if I had uncovered a bug, since
status had no problem. Also the error message "D: is not a working
copy" was sort of confusing, since not only had I not specified D:\ on
as a target, but D: is a device, not a directory. I guess the code was
looking for a common parent working copy among the paths I specified.

Michael Pilato was kind enough to respond to off-list and indicated that
the capability used to exist, but there was some kind of trade off that
forced it to be removed. It is now post-1.0, apparently.
