There was a whole thread of discussion about this about a week ago or
so. I don't know if anything was actually fleshed out, but in the
meantime, if you are in Unixland, you can use:

   svn ls `svn info path_to_wc_thing | grep 'Url:' | cut -c 6-`

There was talk of just making an 'svn url' subcommand that would
shortcut that to just:

   svn ls `svn url path_to_wc_thing`

But again, I don't recall any resolution.
