Actually, I was implying otherwise. Last I heard it did not contain
licensing text, and there were complications with getting the
copyright holder to license it appropriately. This in turn caused
Debian to have to remove it (no permission to redistribute, etc), and
was my primary reason for creating svn-load :)

Of course this may have changed - if so, and if you can point me to
the discussion, I'll let the Debian subversion maintainers know so
that they can re-add svn_load_dirs to their package.
