To tell you the truth, I'm not sure what the idea behind all the logic
going into the "not versioned, and not exported" error is. That output
is not documented in "svnversion -h" or the svnbook. It looks to me
like it actually means "file not found" (or, before my patch, "file is
a directory"). Anyone know of a reason that it should stuck around
instead of turning into "file not found"?
