Performance is not related to my point #1. You are correct that is
related to point #2. Please re-read if necessary. Point #1 is about a
valid feature that the GUI provides.

I think there have been plenty of complaints about the performance of svn
status on Windows. This is nothing new.

I am not vetoing anything. I am simply trying to bring the concerns of
the GUI's into the design discussion. Certainly those concerns deserve to
be raised? Ironically, I thought I was also advocating the same solution
as you -- adding inherited properties, and then driving this and other
feature off of properties.
