heh - wished I seen this before sending my last lengthy mail :)

The core functionality is there (and seems to work well for a number
of people). We currently implement all options except:
  -p filename table listing properties to apply to matching files
  -svn_username username to perform commits as
  -svn_password password to supply to svn commit
  -v increase program verbosity, multiple -v's allowed

-svn_username and -svn_password are probably easy to implement, I just
don't really understand where they are needed (I use svn+ssh
everywhere), and I can't claim clean-room reimplementation if I read
svn_load_dirs source :)

We also implement an additional option (thanks to John Wright):
   -m FILE, --move-map=FILE
                 Load a mapping of regular expression patterns to
                 lambda functions of match objects from FILE
   Which is useful, e.g, if you want to move all .gif files from one
   directory to another, or rename all *.C files to *.c.

Windows support is being integrated, thanks to Mariano Reingart (and
which triggered my hunt for an external hosting site), which will
hopefully be available in a week or so.
