svn status has a quirk: --verbose not only makes it display more
information about each file, but also changes the set of files of
which the status is shown, by recursing one level into any named
directories. I feel non-orthogonal behaviour like this will be a
nuisance in the long run, making it harder to write scripts that use
svn.

Only one level, or N levels (that is, all the way down?)

Only one level. OK, recurse isn't the right word. Here is an
example; note no output for the first case:

julianfoad@linux:~/src/subversion svn status build/
julianfoad@linux:~/src/subversion svn status build/*
__ build/PrintPath
__ build/buildcheck.sh
__ build/gen_base.py
 
 
 Umm. Did you hack your local copy of svn to print out underscores in
 the first two columns? I removed the underscores from the client
 status output waaaaaaaaay back in 3396 (!).
 
 So this is making me wonder if you're running an ancient client or
 something else odd is going on.

Oh, shucks - good call. Yes, I'm running the version 0.14.2 (r3033)
that came with SuSE Linux 8.1 about four months ago. I've downloaded
the latest but haven't built it. Oops. Sorry. So I don't know whether
my comments apply to the current state of Subversion.
