RFC: add commit feedback to svnsync

I've been using svnsync quite a bit lately, and I'm a bit freaked out
by its complete lack of feedback during a commit. Like, I'll start a
sync going, and the command will just sit there for 20 minutes
printing absolutely nothing when it hits a 'big' revision to commit.
As a developer, I know it's working... but if I were a newbie, I'd
have no idea if the process were just hung or not.

What I'd like to do is add some sort of feedback during the commits.
Perhaps something like what 'svn commit' does, just show some crawling
dots (one dot per file sent, as usual).

Do folks have any objections?

The sample UI would go from something like this:

$ svnsync sync https://host.example.com/svn/project
Committed revision 1.
Copied properties for revision 1.
Committed revision 2.
Copied properties for revision 2.

To something like this:

$ svnsync sync https://host.example.com/svn/project
Replicating revision 1: ..................
Committed revision 1.
Copied properties for revision 1.
Replicating revision 2: ........
Committed revision 2.
Copied properties for revision 2.
