Ignored vs. Unversioned

I've come across a small problem in how subversion handles ignored

In svn_wc.h, the comment starting at line 612 states that:

 * Ignored files should have a text_status of svn_wc_status_none.
 * Non-ignored Files that are not under version control should have a
   text_status of svn_wc_status_unversioned.

However, this isn't how things work out in practice. When I call
svn_client_status with the no_ignore flag set, both ignored and
unversioned files come back with text_status svn_wc_status_unversioned.

Actually being able to distinguish between these two types of files
would be helpful to me for my work on gsvn.

I've attached a patch that "fixes"[1] this, in the sense that ignored
files will come back with a text_status of svn_wc_status_none.


[1] I have no idea what kind of breakage this could lead to in other
    parts of the code, so I'm calling this a "fix" rather than a fix.
    Someone who actually knows what is going on will have to think it
