Fantastic! Methinks now is the time to chip in with my patch to make Subversion's user-visible operations proceed in sorted order. In particular, I want "svn status" output to be sorted (without piping it through a "sort" filter, because that removes streaminess) so that I can read it and find things in it (by eye) more easily, and "svn diff" output to be sorted so I can meaningfully compare one patch file with another similar one. A separate thread will blink into existence.
