Sorry to comment on this so late. I hope it's not *too* late yet.

Since neon 0.25 is now out and most likely will be included in 1.3 I'd
like to add another feature I've been waiting for for a long time now:
progress information *during* longer operations.

Now that Subversion has locking, that will attract even more users, and
those users will have many binary files. And binary files can be very
big. So, it's really a bad user impression if they e.g. 'svn cat' a
binary file, but can't even see that something is going on until the
operation is finished. Users are used to see progress information from
webbrowsers (and that's something everyone is familliar with).
I guess you would complain too if your webbrowser wouldn't show you
information about a file you're downloading (like 20kB/s, 45% complete).

See http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=901

I think every GUI client out there will profit from that.
