(Posting to the list this time, sorry Eric)

Hi Eric,

I sound like a user in the second category you mention, familiar with
Linux but rarely use sed. As I am not a very familiar with C++ and not
in a position to build a patched svn to test I would like to ask:

Is the output of of the "svn status --filter" compatible with xargs or
does it still print the leading status char (like ? or M etc)?

If so this sounds like a very worthwhile addition for users that need
to read sed's man page every time they use it.

Thanks,

Roo.
