Ah. So by "size of a directory" you mean "the sum of all files in and under
that directory", then.

I understand wanting to check the sizes of individual files in a pre-commit
hook, perhaps to validate against a policy that says you aren't allowed to
dump massive files into the VC system. And I'm aware of shops that have
policies against dumping massive *numbers* of files into a single directory
in their VC system. But I've never heard of any rules against keeping the
aggregate file size across a directory tree below some threshold. Though, I
suppose it could be used by Subversion hosting shops as a form of
per-project quota management.


If someone (like yourself) wants to make that change, that's fine with me.
I guess I could foresee someone wanting a few changes along these lines:

1. supporting multiple PATH_IN_REPOS arguments, and displaying the sum of
    all the files listed:

    $ svnlook filesize /path/to/repos /trunk/somefile.c /trunk/README

2. supporting a --verbose (-v) flag which printed each file
    on a line by itself and then a summary line:

    $ svnlook filesize -v /path/to/repos /trunk/somefile.c /trunk/README
             456 /trunk/somefile.c
            1001 /trunk/README
            1457 TOTAL

3. supporting the -R flag which causes the program to not complain
    about directories, and instead recurse into them. (And which can
    be used with -v and with multiple PATH_IN_REPOS arguments, too.)

    $ svnlook filesize -R /path/to/repos /trunk
    $ svnlook filesize -R -v /path/to/repos /trunk
             456 /trunk/somefile.c
            1001 /trunk/README
           25689 /trunk/ChangeLog
           27146 TOTAL
