Thanks for clarifying this. So +1 from me for supporting directories
here -- in whatever version.

Just for your information, we had introduced "Change Sets" in SmartSVN a
while ago with support for directories (only --depth=empty). I can't
estimate how many people are using this feature but we didn't get any
bad feedback here. So my personal conclusion is that at least
--depth=empty directories in changelists seem to be a quite "natural"
concept resp. easy to understand for the user.
