I want 'svn ls --full' to dump raw directory contents in their entirety.
Taking your suggestion, the 'svn ls --xml --full' would do a raw dump in xml
format. Or perhaps 'svn ls --raw'.

I'd also, really like to be able to do 'svn edit
http://myrepos.com/repos/svn/testfile.txt --message "mymessage" -F myfile.txt'
or 'svn edit http://myrepos.com/repos/svn/testfile.txt --message "mymessage" <
myfile.txt'.

I'm not sure if SWIG is the right first place to go for me. Especially since a
I've seen addons in perl and java seem to be replicating this sort of
behavior. I feel like I'm reinventing the wheel. Maybe the behavior should
just exist?

Can I do this? Am I the only person that sees value in something like this?

Or is this totally outside of what subversion is/should be able to do from the
command line.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions/guidance.
