 Issue #781:
  
 http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=781

Since I can't touch the issue, I'll just say that the explicit '.'
method seems right to me. Given that I had never seen the issue or the
discussion surrounding it before, that's the behavior I expected. I
understand the appeal of having an explicit option to satisfy a certain
aesthetic sense. But really, it's the more important for the pieces
people interact with directly to behave in a manner they do not find
surprising. If 'svn st' felt a little more like 'ls' to use, I would
recommend '-d' instead.

If ever I get a wild hair and decide to make up a patch for this issue,
is it likely to be accepted? Or, are you simply not going to bother at
all until after 1.0?

Thanks,
