Well, I'm in two minds about whether we should support all three of "depth=0",
"depth=1" and "depth=infinity" recursion behaviours, at the command-line
interface and at API level. One part of me says that "depth=1" is one
particular case that can be built up from "depth=0" and shouldn't be specially
supported. But the other side of me acknowledges that it is a commonly desired
result.

In a WC I'm not seeing it this slow: for me, "svn pl * */*" takes 0.22s real
time for 40 files. (I assume that is calling svn_client_proplist 40 times.)
On the other hand, for a "file://" URL, it is taking more than 1s per file for
me! This is on Linux on a 500 MHz Pentium III. What is your system and test?

May I suggest that, to begin with, we investigate why some things are slow,
before we consider adding a new API function.
