Um, and when you say "the new test doesn't intend to check", you also
mean "with this patch, svn cl foo --cl bar still does nothing", right?
 (Because that's what I'm seeing, and it's kind of unfortunately.)

Hmm. I kind of feel like "svn changelist" should default to
svn_depth_infinite rather than svn_depth_empty. Then (a) "svn cl new
--cl old" lets you do a rename, without need an extra "-R" and (b)
"svn cl clname directory" will add the directory's recursive contents
to clname instead of just doing *nothing*.

(If this change doesn't happen, perhaps a warning (ie, notification)
that a directory is being skipped would be useful.)
