We're planning to centralize all the administrative data for a WC at
the top of the WC, and provide a 'svn detach' command to allow for
severable sub-directories. The WC data storage format will probably
change drastically when we do this, likely moving into something like
sqlite. The information we track will likely be a superset of what's
tracked today in all the .svn dirs.

I use wcgrep quite often.
