Re: Fwd: pysvn_load_dirs: a freely redistributable implementation of svn_load_dirs

Hey, Peter, can I make a suggestion? "svn_load_dirs" was never a very
descriptive name anyway, for a tool that essentially does what most
people think of as "vendor branches" (although some object to the
latter term on the grounds that often the source is not a vendor but
another open source project).

In any case, both in order to avoid identity confusion and to have a
better name, maybe you could name it something wholly new, and just
say in its documentation that it's intended as a drop-in replacement
for svn_load_dirs?

Possibilities: "sourcedrop", "svn_vbranch", "sidefork"... I dunno, I'm
just making stuff up, probably you can come up with something better.
