Oops. I misquoted myself. Let me correct it so it makes sense.

The biggest problem I see here is that the XML is 'locked-in' and not
definable. You get what you get and that's all she wrote.

To me, that's just a pain in the butt, and a waste, since in order to
successfully glean all relevant data about a file, I have to do a svn info
-v, or an svn log -v, and then parse the whole shebang , instead of being
able to ask for what I want.

Oh well.
