Sounds good to me.

At the moment, *far* more human eyeballs parse 'svn st -v' than
computer programs. This sort of output is intolerable to me:

               14 1 jrandom A/D/G/pi
               14 1 jrandom A/D/G/rho
               14 1 jrandom A/D/G/tau
               14 6 anonymous A/D/H
               14 1 jrandom A/D/H/chi
               14 6 anonymous A/D/H/omega
               14 1 jrandom A/D/H/psi

... if my eyeball can't see a single left-alignment in the final
column, I go insane. It makes reading the list of paths almost
impossible.

I'm glad you're fixing it, CMike. :-)
