In thinking on that for a bit, I think the comments in the bug entry are
correct. Doing that would add a marvelously complex, devious and
interesting option that I think most people wouldn't use.

Myself, if I wanted something like that, I'd want to (and expect to)
write a find expression on the command line that filters out the files
I'm interested in, and then pass those as arguments to svn status.
'find' makes so much better a tool for filtering and selecting a group
of files based on some criteria that I'd hesitate to put any of its
functionality into svn status.

OTOH, having non-recursive svn status not recurse into directories when
they're directly (no pun intended) mentioned on the command line is
highly useful. It's the only way to get certain kinds of output from
it, especially if you're using 'find' to generate the file list in the
first place.

Have fun (if at all possible),
