On a selfish note, we do not get to process stderr in the xslt consumer of
the output. I would further go out on a limb and say that most consumers of
XML would benefit from the errors being in band vs. out of band.
<info/> tells enough or better yet
<error msg="svn: '.' is not a working copy"/>
Both are nice, first is trivial.

There's no different between with and without --xml regarding info.
It treats "not a working copy" as an error instead of as a warning as
status does. I think there's still an old issue regarding our
inconsistency regarding this
We need to distinguish between the case where we emit a warning and continue
and the case were we bail. I think it makes sense to output well-formed
and valid XML in the former case. In the latter case it is going to be
more tricky since an error can happen anywhere.
A way to know if a directory is a working copy would be to just run
svn info on it, disregarding the output. If stderr is empty, you can be
it is a working copy.
