Oh... I didn't remember that.

The information coming up from libsvn_client is "here are notifications
of all the things happening". I think it would be wrong to make
libsvn_client say "and also here is some summary information about those
notifications, classified in a particular way".

If we want to make the summary stats available from libsvn_client, one
way we could do it would be to make libsvn_client provide a notification
wrapper function that just does stat-counting and then forwards all
notifications on to the "real" notification function:

svn_error_t *
  svn_wc_notify_func_t *wrapper_notify_func,
  void **wrapper_notify_baton,
  svn_wc_notify_func_t real_notify_func,
  void *real_notify_baton,

and provide some way to read the stats out of it on request.

That way would not interfere with the current libsvn_client API and
would be replaceable if the particular client wanted stats classified

But I just don't think we need to make this available at libsvn_client
level unless we see other clients that would actually use it.
