[PATCH] 'svn mkdir --parents' shows absolute paths

Hi,

Whenever we try to add/mkdir directories recursively using 'svn mkdir
--parents' we get the absolute paths for the adds which is not the case for
normal adds.

During a normal svn add/mkdir operation we get:

        $ svn mkdir wc2/trunk
        A wc2/trunk

On the other hand with '--parents' we get:

        $ svn mkdir --parents branches/sample/think/use/fast
        A /tmp/wc2/branches
        A /tmp/wc2/branches/sample
        A /tmp/wc2/branches/sample/think
        A /tmp/wc2/branches/sample/think/use
        A /tmp/wc2/branches/sample/think/use/fast

In order to be consistent across all the results shouldn't we consider having
something like the following for '--parents' ?

        $ svn mkdir --parents wc2/branches/sandbox/sample/think/get
        A wc2/branches
        A wc2/branches/sandbox
        A wc2/branches/sandbox/sample
        A wc2/branches/sandbox/sample/think
        A wc2/branches/sandbox/sample/think/get

Is this an intended behavior? If not the following patch fixes this, which
changes/removes a line from the public API svn_client_add4 (I know which is not
allowed, but what is the best way to go about this?)

[[[
'svn mkdir --parents' shows absolute paths

* subversion/libsvn_client/add.c
   (svn_client_add4): Do not change the path supplied to absolute path.
