Feature request: new function svn_ra_get_dir3() or svn_ra_do_status3()

From: Philipp Marek <philipp_at_marek.priv.at>

Hello everybody,

I have a need to get all entries in the repository, starting from a certain
directory recursively downwards; I need the properties of the items, their
size and their type (file/directory; special can be seen from the
properties).

My problem is that I currently do a svn_ra_do_status() to get all items and
their properties; but to get their sizes I have to use svn_ra_get_dir2()
recursively, which has many roundtrips.

I'd like to ask for a new function svn_ra_get_dir3() that includes a flag to
return the properties of the directory items, too, and possibly a way to work
recursively, to avoid roundtrips and latency.

The other idea would be to extend svn_ra_do_status2(), to optionally include
the size as a new parameter to the callback; this would be a bit cleaner, I
think.

Any ideas?
Should I file an issue?

Regards,

Phil
