IIRC, this has come up at least once on the mailing lists previously in
the last year+. A user was frustrated by the inability to
differentiate file from directory in the output for scripts he was
writing. I seem to recall reading, "even in the XML," then, so he must
have been talking about log output.

Ah, found the message. It was by a WebSVN developer.

Max B suggested at the time that the issue be put into the tracker so
as not to be forgotten, but I don't see any message on the list
indicating that happened and wasn't able to find an such an issue with
a quick search. The original poster does not appear to have made any
posts beyond his original one (though in that he expressed that he was
having some trouble getting his posts to appear).
