But the client-state report is not driven by the version URL; it's
driven by the version numbers in the wc's entries files. (And we
*were* planning to update all of those, since libsvn_wc can do that
without a large report from the server, and since we have to make a
pass over the working directory anyway. Although I have some concerns
about file churn and backup volume, personally.)

Well, Jim may be the only person qualified to answer that question at
the moment, and I think he's away right now.

Totally irrelevant nit: "e.g." (exempli gratia) means "for example".
"i.e" (id est) means "that is".
