Speaking as the person who originally implemented 'svn info', I'd love
to see it work on URLs, so if someone finds the necesarry tuits then go
for it. It will, of course, be considerably more complex than the
current WC only implentation though. There will have to be a lot of
jumping through hoops to retrieve all the needed info, whereas in the WC
case it's all nicely there for us.
