Duh, of course! Thanks Mark.

Okay. It felt a little awkward to have no separation in the Status class
between the WC and repos-supplied information; some of the properties are
so close in naming that I was wondering if the same WC vs. repos separation
which is provided by the svn_wc_entry_t and ood_* fields on the
svn_wc_status2_t shouldn't exist in the Status API as well. For instance,
add a ReposStatus or Entry inner class; _something_ to help differentiate
similarly-named fields between the repository and working copy.
