Wouldn't it be easier if the data was always made available as a
property of SVN directory collections? This way the data would get
migrated into every WC entries file quite simply. Additionally, this WC
property would help solve the UI application problem of determining
which repository each WC directory belongs to, and thus can inffulence
how the UI groups changes into Subversion transactions.

This could also make traversing intra-repository modules during svn
submit easier to accomplish as well.
