Behavior of -N for svnlook

I'm working on a patch for svnlook to add a --non-recursive option
and the ideal behavior is unclear, so I'm looking for comments on how
it should work.

My initial thought is that it should print the contents of the
directory supplied by the path argument, both files and directories,
without descending into any contained directories. That's the
behavior of the patch I posted last week, and seems to be the most
useful for the way "svnlook tree" is used. However, as Karl Fogel
pointed out, that is not the behavior of -N in the svn commands,
which completely omit all directories.

Does anyone have any thoughts on which behavior would be best (or any
alternate suggestions)?
