Here's a new version w/ the BSD license:
  http://free.linux.hp.com/~dannf/svn-load/svn-load-0.3.tar.gz

Functional changes include:
 * Re-enabled an optimization that avoids recursing down newly
   added subtrees, since they are already added in a batch
   (Thanks to John Wright)
 * Add --no-prompt option for non-interactive execution
 * Add --wc option to use an existing working directory and bpass
   the checkout step
 * Don't checkout/remove the working dir for each import directory,
   re-use it
 * Use a commit message that resembles svn_load_dirs instead of the
   informationless "commit" text
 * Sanitize user provided directories, fixing a couple parsing bugs

fyi, my current plan is to upload this to Debian as a separate package
(could be merged into subversion later). If there's enough time, I may
ask the release managers to accept it into the upcoming 'etch'
release. That does make me somewhat nervous since, afaik, I'm the only
one who has done much testing with it - any reports (success and
failure) are very much welcome.
