I understand. Maybe you could add a remark in the "Complete Reference"
part of the Subversion book for "svnlook changed" that for an
add-with-history of a directory only the directory name itself is shown.
And a note that "svnlook tree" can be used to expand the directory name
to the complete list of paths that will be seen when checking out
a working copy of the new path. Currently the documentation just tells
the command "prints the paths that were changed".
