Before this change 'name' was always the name of a node inside the directory
to which it is now joined, so this transformation doesn't change behavior

See the documentation of this function:
   NAME is the basename of the unversioned file whose status is being
   requested. PATH_KIND is the node kind of NAME as determined by the
   caller. PATH_SPECIAL is the special status of the path, also determined
   by the caller. ADM_ACCESS is an access baton for the working copy path.
   PATTERNS points to a list of filename patterns which are marked as
   ignored. None of these parameter may be NULL. EXTERNALS is a hash
   of known externals definitions for this status run.

Besides, we don't support setting svn:ignore fields that apply on more than
node names. (We /can/ set svn:externals containing subdirectory paths).

I sometimes see examples of ignore patterns containing 'subdirectory/file'
like formats on the users list and StackOverflow, but those are never
matched by subversion. Our code just checks the filename with
svn_wc_match_ignore_list(); a wrapper around apr_fnmatch().

(Changing/'fixing' that would introduce a lot of strange behavior.. like
'svn status' showing more unversioned files when called from a subdir then
when called from the parent directory)
