I think this example isn't relevant -- it doesn't use the working copy
at all, and all of this sleep() discussion is about working copy
bookkeeping. In your example above, 'svn mkdir URL' is slow because
WebDAV is a horrible horrible protocol with at least a dozen
turnarounds.

That said, I think your point still stands in general. :-)
