Thanks for the insult. Hope you feel better now.

Since you obviously haven't read my post here:
http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2010-06/0250.shtml

So again, I suggest the following:

Keep the features svn_client_status() currently has with all the
information but still allow it to be much faster by introducing a mask
parameter which the caller uses to specify which info the status API has
to fetch. For an example, see the links I posted in the mentioned post
above.
That way, you still can have the status API be very fast and only fetch
the 'fast' info that's needed, but still get the 'slow' if the caller
requests it.

So what's wrong with this suggestion? But please, if you have some
concerns, say so with something to back it up. Stating it's against some
policy I've never heard of and can't find in any of the svn docs is
*not* a reason.

Stefan
