Thanks! I think there are still some problems in it; I'll try to send
more later.

I'm not sure if it's too late to change it, but it seems to me that it
might be better for "svn status" to print '?' for files which don't
exist in the repository or the wc. To me, it seems strange that files
which exist in the wc get '?', but not ones which don't exist yet.
' ' is documented as uptodate, which is not true in this case. Making
it '?' might be overall less trouble for programs parsing the output.

Sure. Do I just put it in the message body, or there some special way
to mark it?
