Filed as enhancement issue #1547: '"svn proplist --quiet" should suppress "Properties on 'FILE':" messages'.

### "Needs to" was too strong. Will file an enhancement issue.

Filed as enhancement issue #1548: 'Display current dir as "." rather than empty string'.
(It could well be considered a "defect".)

Explained away (behaviour is correct), by C-Mike Pilato.

> "svn status -v scheduled-add-dir" shows children, but "-uv" does not.

Fixed in r7364, by C-Mike Pilato.

Filed as enhancement issue #1549: 'Feedback from "cleanup" and "revert"'.

These two are pretty much the same, I think. Filed as defect issue #1550: '"svn log" with multiple local targets is broken'.

Filed as enhancement issue #1551: '"svn log" handles unversioned files poorly'.

### Unresolved.

Filed as defect issue #1552: 'Inconsistency copying files to WC'.
