A very very very slow API in the case of properties.

In pysvn WorkBench I parse the working copy to get properties for
all files in one directory. The python code that does this is atleast
an order of magnitude faster then the SVN API.

Once SVN has a fast API to get at properties I'd love to use it.
The key here is that GUIs want info on all files in a directory.
svn_client_list and svn_client_status are the only two commands
that will do this. All others require one call for each files that that
is very slow (because of wc locking?).
