Sure! We haven't really started on the docs for 1.2 yet, but as soon as
we implemented most of those features in TSVN we will start with the
docs - it doesn't make much sense to write the docs before we know how
TSVN will handle these things exactly.

But what about having the filestat information in the svn_wc_entry_t
struct returned by svn_client_status()? That would help TSVN a lot
(performance wise) - I guess you know that Windows isn't as fast with
those calls as Linux, there were some reports before about timing of
'svn st' and 'svn ci' for Linux and Windows on this list...
